Building a skeleton sofa eurowindows
Back to contents</a> Base of the sofasofa will need boards with a section of 150x50. Attach the ends of the boards to the bars using self-tapping screws, the length of which must be at least 100 mm. The corners of the base must be strengthened with additional bars. Make the bottom of the sofa from the fiberboard, and to fix it, write down the bottom of the rack 50x50. These rods will also be fastened with fiberboard nails. Back to contents</a> Assembling the seat and backrest The device of the sofa is an eurobook. To assemble these elements of the sofa, use boards 150x50 mm. They are made according to the same principle as the assembly of the base. Only in this case the fiberboard (or plywood) must be fastened on both sides of the boards, from above and from below. In the boxes of the seat and backrest, you also need to cut the 50x50 blocks in 100 mm steps. Then screw the legs to the sofa. The assembly of the seat frame should be given special attention, since it will carry the greatest load. Try to choose a quality timber without knots (no more than 40%). All surfaces that are joined, smear with carpentry glue and then fasten with screws. Screws and screws should be fastened in steps of no more than 20 cm. This will ensure the reliability of the connection. If the upholstery of the sofa is made of a dense fabric that does not allow air to enter, make holes in a plywood with a diameter of 15-20 mm to ensure air circulation. Back to contents</a> Building armrests The sofa eurobook shouldhave two identical armrests with a length of 900 mm, a width of 200 mm and a height of 550 mm. Make pieces of the right size from the chipboard and screws attach the bars to them. To fasten the screws you need to move from the chipboard to the beam in steps of at least 20 cm. In each bar you need to screw in 4 screws, and in each end - 2 screws. Diagram of the sofa assembly: 1 - seat, 2 - box, 3 - backrest, 4 - bolt, 5 - washer. After this, nail the fiberboard with nails 2x25, in steps of 10-15 cm. For the product to be reliable and strong for many years, the surfaces to be joined together should be greased with joinery glue. The chipboard should be leveled with the back and bottom edge of the armrest. When the armature frame is ready, glue them with foam rubber. All sharp corners and edges of the product must be treated with a planer or file beforehand. To the back wall of the armrests, foam rubber, as a rule, does not glue. Batting is replaced with batting.

To ensure the reliability of fastening the loops to the back, use an edge-turned board with a section of 5x15 instead of bars. See scheme 1 of the folding mechanism of the Eurowalk sofa.

Back to contents</a> Fastening of foam rubber to the ready sofa Firstturn make measurements of all surfaces. By these measurements you will be able to cut foam rubber. Immediately paste each piece of foam that has been cut into the required surfaces. So it will be easier for you to adjust the following details. On the seat and back of the sofa, use foam rubber 10 cm thick. If this is not the case, you can get the required thickness of foam rubber by simply gluing together 2 foam sheets 4 cm thick and 1 thick 2 cm. They can be used to create a detail of the desired geometric shape and customize the details to each other. Back to contents</a> Upholstery sofa fabric Scheme 1. The principle of decomposing the mechanism of transformation "book". First, you need to make patterns for the surfaces to be covered. To do this, measure all of its overall dimensions. Visually divide it into sections. All parts of the upholstery should have a rectangular shape, even if the sofa is of a non-standard shape. Now build the patterns of future upholstery parts. Drawings can be done on old wallpaper or newspapers. When the templates are ready, you can start cutting the fabric. This can also be done simply by attaching the fabric to the detail of the sofa and marking it with all chalk on it. The fabric must be cut from the wrong side. On the seams should leave allowances in sizes not less than 5 cm, and if the edges of the fabric crumble, then leave more. The material should be clean and ironed. Lay the cut-out details on the corresponding parts of the sofa by the back side up. Fix the fabric with pins and sweep with contrasting thread. In order to get the resulting boot on the sofa perfectly, you need to take into account all its bends and angles. When all the details of the cover are sour, cut off excess parts of fabric and stitch on the sewing machine. Turn out the finished cover and try on the sofa. Correct it if necessary, cut off excess and fix on the couch with a stapler. Finished form of the sofa will be attached to the suits from the kapron cord, which are sewn to the upholstery. Thanks to them, the formation of folds will decrease. Under the braces it is necessary to make holes in the fiberboard beforehand. To reduce the abrasion between the foam rubber and the padding shade, special coating material must be placed between them - agrotextile used in horticulture. Back to contents</a>
