First off I had to plug the hole’s the dado’s left at the end of the rails. Once that was done then I used a flush cut saw and removed the excess.
The next step was to even out the top of the rails with the leg assembly.
They were a little proud because my dowel jig leaves something to be desired.
Now its time to predrill and dry fit the piano hinge.

You can see the live edge I left on the bottom rear of the bench seat.
I had to take it inside and let my wife see it.
Now more sanding and some finish. The check I had placed filler in is still wet.
