Here are pictures of my Journey to the Table chair and bench set commission I did. First time making Dining chairs.
The chairs were made first. Easier to fit the table to the chairs than the other way around.
I can only put six pictures here if you have questions about certian aspects let me know and I will post another Project with pictures that I hope will answer them.

Yes had set up problems. I had the 3/4 max infinity lock miter and their gage. The problem is that the stock needs to be slightly less than 3/4 for optimal fit. otherwise one side, or both are not going to mill at a sharp angle and will have a lip at the end. So. if you really need 3/4 stock in you project buy the larger lock miter bit. or adjust to cut one sharp and one with the ledge. Either all the top run sharp or all the bottom run sharp and then they will mate at 90degree angles. and look fairly good and not noticeable at all when you soften the edge with a sander or hand plain or scraper.

This was also a bit tricky to get the right motrice angle for the backs so the “Lumbar cradle” can be created.
