77 > You can scribe the arcs on the back supports and seat slat with a compass made from string, but you'll find it easier and more accurate to make yourself a "compass stick." A compass stick is nothing more than a long, thin board — a wooden yardstick is ideal. Drill small holes at '/»" intervals along the length of the board. To use this as a compass, put a finishing nail through one of the holes in the compass stick, measure along the stick from the finishing nail to another hole, and insert the sharp end of a pencil through that second hole. Then swing the arc.
