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.
A continuing trend in modern furniture design has been the sacrificing of comfort for economy and space. While agreeing that those huge Victorian armchairs were really luxurious, designers today would argue that they would be very much out of place in a modern house, as well as being inordinately expensive. So, designers concentrate on producing chairs which can easily be mass produced and which fit contemporary tastes. Unfortunately of course, the result of such thinking is that most chairs manufactured now tend to merely ornament a room without being very comfortable.
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.
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.
As for the well-lit study suggestion, appealing though it sounds to work under the sun without contending with sudden winds, nothing renders a computer screen unreadable as quickly as sunlight shining directly onto it. Before you know it you've closed so many blinds to block out the sun you've taken away all of the benefits of the conservatory in the first place.
Planning out your space is absolutely crucial when you are living in a small space. For safety you need to allocate a safe space between articles of furniture. In the case of between chairs and the sofa, a space of between 2 to 3 feet should be adequate to prevent hitting the exterior against the furniture every time you move. You also need to have a minimum of 2 foot between the front of your chair or sofa and your coffee table to allow you sufficient room when you stand up. You don't really want to overbalance and keel over across the coffee table if you lose your balance!
