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.
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.
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.
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.
The seat panel has two slots cut in it, corresponding to those cut in the front edge of the side panels. Each slot is located 64mm from and parallel to the short sides and is 368mm in length.
You also need to ensure that you measure the outer dimensions of a piece of furniture - when you are limited for space, it is the outer dimensions that are going to be the important ones. It is as well to remember that whatever the outer measurements of your armchair are, the interior measurements are going to be smaller - so make sure you will have enough room to actually be comfortable when sitting in the armchair.
