    1- Are they measured corner to corner on a diagonal or straight side?
    2- is the cross member cut straight on the side of back rest?
    3- Are the front legs straight or angled?
    4- How far down is the anchor from the bolt?
    There are discrepancies between the pictures and video and I'm an inexperienced builder.
    Thanks for your help.

    does it have to be 22.5 degrees or a 12 degree angle which would be a better sitting angle
