NOTE: The template kit does not come with templates for the front legs and those are confusing. I am waiting on a response from Rockler on that, see comments below. Also, the instructions are wrong when it tells you to cut the bottoms legs to length plus one inch. You will not be able to get them out of that length if you follow the directions. They need cut to 33 inches in order to get all the material you need. This needs updated in the instructions.
The screws they sent with the kit are not the best. They are square head and strip easily and I had two break off in the chair. I made it out of all cedar. I will get different screws next time.
The cardboard templates come fine but I traced on some 1/4 ply I had laying around and strongly recommend that.
The cons. I scoured the instruction book and could not find the angle to cut the front legs anywhere. Maybe I missed it. Called tech support no answer. Covid 19 sucks there too... I set it up with clamps and finally decided on 15 degree andle and went for it. I don't have a band saw so all cuts were with a jig saw which is by far the last saw I would use. I managed and after assembly I would change a few things. I would cut all the straight cuts first then put the template on and trace it. I free handed on most cuts and cleaned up with sand paper. I would definitely plan and use circular saw and guides where I could.
Overall I love it and am building about six more for the patio.
Slats are 1x6 and the legs are out of the 2x8. There is also a few sized lumber needed.
There also appears to be a couple details missing from the plans in regards to the angle for the legs. This has been added to the Rockler website.
