The seat frame is roughed out and dry fit. The trapezoid seat means that there is some angle joinery(mortise and tenon). The rear legs will be stylized with a lambs tongue into a chamfer before the seat frame is assembled. The secondary wood is soft maple which was cut down in the mid 80's by a local farmer. It actually makes unique primary wood in that it has worm holes and spalting. Ive been watching the Phitin Phills try to drive in runs to no avail. Time for a beer.
