Using cedar fence boards. 
-Cut each board to 22". (Fit the best at that size in between hand rests). Rounded all rough edges with a router and sanded by hand.
-Holes drilled through boards and chair frame. Used 1/4" carriage nuts and bolts to assemble everything. Drilled slightly larger holes for an easier fit.
-Same was done for the hand rests, except used a bandsaw to give them a better shape.
