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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Why restrict ourselves, though? There are a number of rooms that armchairs would easily fit into, and in fact, there are a number of use cases that are crying out for armchairs above all else. With handcrafted furniture companies (see below for an example), you have ample options to tailor an armchair to those specific environments. No need to worry about your armchair looking like it's been pulled straight out of the living room and is being held somewhere else temporarily.
