« Part 6: Round Overs, Arm Rests, and Fixing A Mistake Part 7 of Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair series Part 8: Plugging & Drilling »

Now that the seat was all set. It was tie to begin on the back rest. I mde a few more mistakes in this portion by drilling the pilot holes first. Some of them I drilled misaligned (I have since purchased a drill press so the next time I do something like this, I’ll be 100% sure my pilot holes will be lined up.

What happened was the back rest box was a little misaligned at the corners. I cleaned it up with my sander and block plane. Not everything lined up perfectly, but I was happy with the result.

Again, all screws countersunk for plugs. It’s starting to come together!

I rounded over all the back slats and assembled everything up.
