If you have a spindle sander?...then sand to the lines made from your template. If you don’t have a spindle sander then clamp the two legs together and sand them. They will match which is the point anyway. Sam Maloof once told me to stop looking at my tape measure and trust my eyes. When they look good to you they are good. Just watch the flats on the area that will be joined to the seat and arms don’t disturb those.

good luck
