The seat legs, simlar to the cabinet legs, were to be angled at five degrees, this proved difficult to the tapered round nature of the leg design, the legs were slightly different heights (seoerated by mm) due to tolerance left for turning on the lathe, and had to be sanded down, flat – held by a jig. The leg was wedged between two circle holes cut to different diamenters, to hold different points along the leg. When all the legs were the same height, and checked with a , they were put back into the jig, one-by-one, and sanded to the correct angle – dictated by the angled fence on the sander.  once the legs had been angled – top and bottom a measurement was taken from the centre outside each leg and they were checked again using a level. Some had to be re sanded slightly to get them exactly the same height, and then re checked until this was achieved.
