from bottom. Cut a series of close
lines across the four legs and remove with a
hammer and chisel.
2. Nail and glue the front legs to
the side beams as shown.
3. Nail and glue the side beams to
the front legs, then drill a 100mm
hole as shown and bolt the front beam
to the front legs. Repeat with the back legs
and back beam.
4. Nail and glue the central support
beam. Temporarily position top
length of fence capping to ensure the
seat is set square and level.
5. Nail and glue three fence palings
to form the seat. Cut a fourth paling to
fit along the back edge.
6. Nail and glue the lower length of
fence capping along the back of
the seat and slide the fence palings
into position between the upper and lower
lengths of fence capping, ensuring they’re
evenly spaced. Fix the top fence capping to
the top of the rear legs with glue and nails.
7. Sand any rough edges or surfaces
with the sander.
Start with a 120-grit and finish off with a 180-grit sanding pad.

generous coat of Woodoc 50, following the instructions on the tin. Allow the first coat to dry; rub down with Woodoc SteelWool. Apply a further two coats of Woodoc 50 and allow to dry.
