The armchair in the bedroom helps with a very 21st century issue - the quandary of laptop, tablet or phone use in bed while your partner is trying to sleep.
It is possible to have cushions made up for you by professionals, but they are easy to make yourself from rubber and the covering of your choice.
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.
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.
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.
Provided both side panels have been cut to exactly the same size, there is no reason why you should not clamp them together with all edges flush and cut out paired slots at the same time.
