AND A SOFA AND THE BEDAs a regular reader of the journal “modelist-Konstruktor”, I would like to thank the editors for publishing materials of interest. Particularly attracted to me and my family section “Club home of the masters”. Put here the development and the advice of the craftsmen led to the creation of his own furniture, convenient for a small living space. I want to share the design rasklade on sofa that is for us to rest and sleep. In the folded position, its width less than one meter, and in the spread increases to almost 1.2 meters. Basic materials — sheets, chipboard, hardboard, boards, sticks, foam with upholstery fabric.


The sofa consists of a box-base, two sidewalls, a back, a retractable frame on three rollers and pillows. Box dimensions mm 1800x650x255 collected from bars 45×45 mm., the Joints transverse and longitudinal bars planted on the glue (carpenter’s, PVA). At the joints of the bars to strengthen a metal corners. Front and back sides-box base upholstered MDF panels, the sides with panels of chipboard sheets, the top of which perform the role of guides for pull-out frame.
The sides of the sofa are the frame, covered with sheets of fiberboard, which is placed on top of the foam and all is covered with a decorative cloth. The front end is closed by a plywood plank, also covered with a decorative fabric. Both sides are attached with M8 bolts to the box-the base of the sofa.
