PM: The Sleeping Dragon - setting the backrest.

Setting the seating boards sections & subsections onto the base blocks  with the backrest. It's been a day of moving about large lumps of oak. Once the base blocks were in position you can see got up to stage with the backrest in test fit position.  It will be set down a a bit lower in the final installation - 35 mm above the seating plane.

We will have used up nearly 24 m of 25 dia stainless steel tube in the creation of this piece.

This is the centre section of the bench.
