At the front of the top and bottom sections pre-drill two 2mm pilot holes and countersink.
Drill the holes 30mm from each edge.
On the top and bottom of the front sections measure in 30mm from the edges and drill pilot holes.
Place the front panel between the top and bottom and drive screws through the pre-drilled holes.
Make sure the screw head is below the surface, as you will fill this with wood filler later on to conceal.
Place the back section on top of the assembled seat section and drive screws through the back. Again, make sure that the screw heads are below the surface for filling in later on.
Note: Don't apply too much pressure to prevent going through the board on the other side.
Pre-drill and countersink the front, back and sides in exactly the same way that you did for the chair.
Place the base accurately on top of the sides to pre-drill 2mm countersunk pilot holes before screwing the base to the sides.
Attach all four legs in exactly the same way.
Note: Pay particular attention to the cut edges, as these quickly absorb any paint if not sanded smooth.
Apply an undercoat of slightly watered down acrylic paint to all surfaces. Let dry and then sand with 400-grit sandpaper. Wipe clean.
I used some old cans of Rust-Oleum American Accents spray paint that I still had, but Rust-Oleum now have their 2X range and an amazing selection of colour combinations.
If you prefer, you could also paint with acrylic paint, but I love the silky smooth and brush-stroke free finish that spray paint gives.
If the piano hinge doesn't have holes that go right to the edge, use a 3mm HSS bit to drill holes for secure fastening down of the piano hinge.
