Sawing the legs to length

The technique shown above will ensure that all four legs are precisely the same length. Cut four wood blocks from a single board, then notch one of the blocks to fit around a leg (inset). Place the block around the first leg to be cut. Holding the leg firmly with one hand, cut it to size with a flush-cutting saw. Once the first leg is trimmed, remove the notched block and replace it with one of the remaining blocks. Position the notched piece around the next leg and make the cut. Continue in this way until all four legs are cut (right). If you want the bench to have a backward slant, tack shims to the bottoms of the front legs before trimming the legs.
