For the wings on the long edges, I used a 3/8” bead bit along the top edge. Due to an error in positioning the blank on the CNC when these long pieces were cut, the tool cut past the edge of the blank slightly, making the height of one of the wings was about 1/16” shorter than the other. To make them both the same height, I used double-sided tape to attach a spacer to the opposite side to run against the fence. The spacer was placed up against the tenons as an index.

For the remainder of the outer structure, I used a 1/2” radius bit at a depth to leave about 1/4” flat section in the center of the edges. I played around with a scrap piece until I got the profile I wanted.

And a dry-fit for a photo-op.

The chair is still waiting for a cushion.
