To support the rear of the bench's armrests, I installed a pair of vertical posts, between the back support stretcher and rear of the seat frame, with notched lap joints. The armrests are 22" long, 3" diameter logs notched at the rear to fit snugly around the vertical support posts where they are fastened with deck screws.
