It looks good to me Olly, though why you might want a leg on the outside (or even inside) of your shed is something that escapes me!

If you wanted a leg up, you only had to ask mate!
I actually like this one.

Olly wants to increase the seating to six and he is short of room as seen here.......

Now you know why!!

Thank you, guys, very funny!
Marc, in case you haven't realised already, both photos are of the same leg! Actually, one has the rail mounted flush; the other is set back 6mm from the outer face.

This mock-up is made from a bit of pine, spray-painted white to hide the knots, grain and highlight the shape or form (it's the kind of thing Alan Peters recommends).

While I think this leg will complement the rest of the design rather well [I should also mention, at this point, that the rails will have a slight curve along their lower edge], I am concerned it looks a little thin at the bottom... It is difficult to tell without a completed frame to offer it up to.
I'll probably progress with the frame for the time being and leave the shaping until the last minute. On this first example, the curve begins about halfway up the leg. Although it could make only a minutely subtle difference, I may produce another one this weekend with a curve beginning closer to the foot, just to see how it looks.

Yes mate, I did notice. I just liked the lighting in the other image
 I also was going to sue you for breech of contract but, I noticed you didn't have a leg to stand on!
 I think you may be right Olly, frame first and legs to suit. That way your have some other ideas by then so more to choose from
