More tidbits of bench work!

 The next step in my process was to install the tee nuts (pictured on the right).  The first step in this process was to make pilot holes in the metal cradle, then place the wood portion in the cradle so holes could be marked in the wood.  A mark was also  made on the inside of the legs of the cradle to indicate the front and the back.  These marks can and will be removed after the bench is assembled..The pictures below show the next steps for installation.


First Step, drill center hole, and then the recess for the tee nut.
The Tee Nut installed, used so there is not a hole on the backside of the wood.  They will be hidden once the metal frame is put on.
