The back looks to be around 110 – 120° if horizontal is 0 and the seat about 10°. I would try setting up some boards however you can to see what feels comfortable. Arms appear to be level.

Back looks like 22 degrees. Seat should be about 16-17” from the floor. Arms are at 90 degrees and about 23” from floor. In the pictures, the arms look too high. I would connect the seat and the back first. Have to cut a dado at 22 degrees and insert and glue the seat/back and build the frame around it.

I’d try something that wasn’t so butt ugly.
