In the modern trend the armchair has become an important piece of furniture along with the sofa and other furniture that you buy to decorate your house. Purchasing the armchair requires special consideration as it will not only add to the beauty of the room but will also provide comfort and relaxation when you recline in it to watch your favorite show on the television or read the newspaper or just relax after a tiring day.
Perhaps the greatest limitation on furniture design is the smallness of modern houses. To be comfortable, a chair must not only be well designed, constructed and padded, but also it must be fairly large. As few people can afford the space for a large suite of furniture, armchairs become increasingly smaller.
Cut out all the pieces to the sizes given in the cutting list, taking care that the two side panels match exactly. These pieces now have to be cut to patterns and as this work represents the major part of the construction processes, great care should be taken.
Planning your decor according to the size of your space is critical, no matter whether the room is large or small. Home furniture needs some space in between it to ensure proper room flow, traffic flow and safety.
Use a tenon saw to cut the slot, following the rules on correct sawing techniques given in most DIY manuals. If you cut exactly to the marked lines, you will make the slot slightly too wide. Instead, position the saw so that one face is just inside and parallel to the line. When you have cut down the lines, cut out the short edge of the slot with a jig saw or chisel.
Wood is used for the basic frame. Pine or some other softwood is suitable, but a satisfactory and cheaper alternative is 16mm plywood. As with most manufactured materials, there are different grades of plywood and you should choose a high quality type, such as Finnish birch, which takes a very good painted finish on both surfaces.
