Just a note on the assembly of the legs into the seat. It is not a good idea to cut the legs to the computed final length because the leg bottom will not be flat to the floor.

I suggest that you cut the legs 3/4” long and dry fit them into the seat. Prepare a scrap piece of 3/4” plywood about 6” square by drilling a hole in the center just large enough for the bottom of a leg to go through. Then with the seat and legs standing in an upright position on a flat surface place each leg, one at a time through the hole in the ply wood and using a Japanese style dozuki saw cut the leg length using the flat surface of the plywood as a guide. After each leg is shortened by 3/4” shim it with scrap 3/4” ply before moving to the next leg to cut it.

This will result in a good flat leg/floor interface all around with the seat at the desired height.
