Be it an email you just need to send that night, or some last minute present buying or travel arrangements, our lives are increasingly ruled by devices, and at the same time, we're increasingly expected to be accessible and available all hours of the day.
There is a danger that this chair might end up being used as an incredibly luxurious shoe fitting point, however. If you don't think anyone in your family is likely to actually read under the stairs, the armchair may end up being more decorative than functional - which might not be a problem for you, depending on your circumstances.
Two slots corresponding to those cut in the top edges of the side panels are made in the back panel. They are the same length - 165mm and are located 64mm from, and parallel to, the short sides, and is 368mm. in length.
In a larger place this is not as important, however you should still get the measurements of any armchairs for sale to ensure that you'll be able to leave enough room round the piece for flow and safety.
One answer to the problem, which has been developed over the last few years, is furniture which can easily and quickly be stowed away when not in use. Nowadays it is possible to buy inflatable chairs, and more conventional chairs which can be assembled or dismantled in a matter of seconds. It is on this latter principle that the knock-down chair has been designed.
Now cut the slots in the side panels. There are two on each: one houses the back panel and the other houses the seat panel. Make the slot for the seat panel first. This slot, which is 16mm wide, runs at angle, from a point about halfway down the front edge, to a point 368mm from the front edge. To mark it in exactly, first draw a point on the front, short edge, 267mm from the top long edge. With a protractor set at 86° mark in the angle at which the seat panel meets the front edge of the side panel. Then use the two marked points to draw in a line extending 368mm from the front short edge of the side panel. This line marks the proposed location of the upper surface of the seat panel. To mark out the correct width of the slot, draw another point 16mm from that already marked on the front short edge of the side panel and, with the aid of a protractor, draw another line parallel to the first and 16mm from it.
