I made one cut to define the depth of the rabbit and then I raised the blade to match the leftover material and cleared out the rest of it. With another cut you can see, I went a little deeper than I needed to on that first cut, but it won't affect the function. The legs are joined by a pair of side rails. I started by cutting one by fours to length. Then I rip them down to get two rails out of each piece. That'll
be one by two. After that, I drill pocket holes in the ends of all the rails Before joining the rails on the legs. Together, I cut the side panels to size from 3/4 inch. The plywood I laid the legs in the rails face down, and then I secured the top rail with screws. Then I use the panels that I just cut to position the lower rail. This eliminates any room for error and measuring and give that exact match. I secure the lower rails and then I moved on to the panels.
I drilled pocket holes on the sides to join the legs and one on the top of the panel to attach the walnut feet later Since 3/4 inch plywood isn't really 3/4 of an inch. I use some playing cards to shim the panels up and make them flush with the inside face of the legs. Then I locked everything in place with some more pocket screws. The base of the bench will be painted and for a smooth surface, I wanted to fill the pocket holes.
