To simplify building this Bench, I tried not to think of it as one project. Rather, I concentrated on building sub-assemblies.
I started with the two end assemblies. Each has a straight front leg and a back leg thafs angled for more comfort when sitting.
TEMPLATE. Whenever needuniformparts that have curves or angles, I make a cardboard template first, see Pattern at right.
Design Note: The template for the back legs is also used later for a pair of back uprights. But the legs and uprights are not identical. The "BL" marks on the template indicate the top and bottom of the legs. And the "BU" marks indicate the uprights.
