« Part 3: Starting Seat Back Part 4 of Porch Glider series Part 5: Back Building »

Got all the curves cut on one half of the slats, and then used a Microplane rotary shaper with a follower bearing to duplicate the patter on the second half of the slats. I prefer the Microplane over a standard router, since this is end grain and would have been a major PITA to do without blowout.

I misread the plan, and ended up cutting one of the slats too short by about half an inch, so I improvised the curve pattern on the tops of the slats. I think it came out pretty well, but we’ll see once it’s all assembled.

Next I need to select a piece for the center slat, and then start screwing things down to the bottom brace. I also still need to scrape/sand all of these pieces too…
