All pieces are cut from a strong hardwood like oak. The Seat Legs and Back Legs are cut from these pieces to formed curved pieces. The Seat Leg is 2" wide. The Back Legs are 2.5" wide except for regions that taper to 3" wide to form 1/2" backstops for seat supports. See the seat support detail.
If a softwood or plywood is used it is best to increase thickness of the legs from .75" to 1" and increase the thickness of the slats from 3/8" to 1/2". All parts are glued with water-proof glue and fastened with 4d galvanized finish nails or rust resistant screws.
For a lighter version:
* Thanks to Larry Elterman for finding an error in the radii previously specified to cut the legs. Previous plans had radii that were 8.8" longer. They worked but were slightly inconsistent with the other stated dimensions.
