Legs of the bench have been installed with through mortise and tenon joints and rising dovetails. I measured the back legs by laying a framing square flush to the top of the leg and measuring up 90 degrees to the top to mark where the leg hit 33" on the tape measure. The key to this joint is the ability for the top of the dovetail to fit at the back of the mortise on the underside.
If everything goes right and you said a couple of prayers, the legs will be even to one another. When I went to Woodworking in America Conference in Berea, KY last year I saw Roy's Roubo bench. I then laid out the tenons and cut them to size with my bandsaw finishing it up with my handsaw and chisels. Once the back legs were cut, I laid out the rising dovetail on the front legs and cut to the lines using a back saw and trimmed to the line with a chisel. Once all the joints were cut, I fitted them in the mortises and examined how well each leg was level with one another.
Disclaimer: Some people may be apprehensive working with pressure treated lumber since it contains the harsh chemicals ACQ (Alkaline Copper Quaternary). As far as being in constant contact with the ACQ lumber, I believe it will be minimal at best.

I cut each leg using my circular saw flipping it at each pass and cleaning up the end using my low angle jack plane. Then I chopped away the center with chisels the same way you would chop out the waste material on a half blind dovetail joint. The main reason I decided to use it was for the additional weight it would give to the base.
