Mill Creek seats

I noticed a descrepency between the plans and instruction manual for the seats on a Mill Creek. After building the first seat of course. The plans show the slats as 1/4 x 3/4 but the manual says 3/8 x 3/4. Will the thinner slats hold up or am I going to be rebuilding this one?

 

                thanks,

                Chris

RE: Mill Creek seats

I would think it questionable.  I swapped out my kit slats for some that I made out of sappalle.  I was careful with the endgrain orientation and even with the correct size,  there is a bit of "spring" to them.  May be add  a third bottom  brace??

RE: Mill Creek seats

 Is there a manual for the seats other than the book that comes with the kit? I used the plans to put my seats together, but thought there should be some additional instructions. Specifically, what is the recommended spacing between slats?

The Mill Creek plans show seat construction at full size---including slat spacing.
