This was a really solid project...took a couple of months. I wound buying both online and paper versions. They are not quite the same, both is better than either. Some parts of this project were really tough. Aligns the mortises on the top and bottom back rails, getting the seat slat screwed in and forming the back legs all took a certain level of anxious worry. But all more or less worked out.

All in all, a good learning project with some tough parts. Nice job, Woodcraft!
