The plans call for 1x12's for the seat and back but my local Home Depot never has1x12's that aren't warped so I glued two 1x6's for the back
and two 1x6's and a 1x2 for the seat.
The back all glued up.
I cut the seat and back to length on the tablesaw.
I try to involve my son whenever I can.
The seat back cut to length and width.
The back is cut at a 10 bevel to allow it to lean back.
I also cut the seat at the same level so that it would match up.
I used a 1/4" roundover bit on my router table to round the top of the seat.
I stopped it right before the seat back to make a cleaner joint.
I used my jigsaw to round the corners on the top of the seat back.
