I fashioned a jig to hold the bottom rail to bore the mortises at a 10degree angle. and canted about the same to match the backrest top that is curved and slanted

Got the set built although its still tropical weather.....
This is white oak, the original idea I had was a formica top surface, but I thought I would try to see if I could do a solid top.
The top is 4 boards wide, I think it looks better, but wonder how durable it will be. I am now wondering about using an epoxy for the top. Question is how to apply something like glaze coat ? Looks like it requires something to dam or contain it? And will poly stick to it?
