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.
We can be ever so rigid in our thinking at times. Armchairs and sofas go in the living room, don't they? That's where they've always gone. That's where we relax in front of the TV, open Christmas presents, and have lazy evening takeaways when we can't muster the energy to set up the dining room. It's where we entertain and relax.
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.
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.
First tale the two side panels and cut out the angled rear edge. To do this accurately, mark a line 25mm from the rear edge, then draw a line diagonally from opposite corners. Provided your two side panels match exactly in size, you can clamp them together and cut along the diagonal line to give a matching pair.
Now mark and cut out the slots which house the back panel. These are 165mm long, 13mm wide, and run at an angel of 82° to the top edges of the side panels. Use the methods detailed above to mark and cut them accurately.
