Corner wood. Just as the material you are using wooden beams and plywood.
Before you pick up the saw and that any cut, you first need:
- define the purpose of. Try to draw the, What do you want to do.
- make calculations. Determine where, where it will be your product, Measure the space, supposed to be assigned to install future furniture,

These tasks will make some of the nuances in the calculation and production of a corner.
Materials for the manufacture of carved and conventional kitchen area of wood with their hands: natural array
Need to work
- 32-35 m rail, size of 45 mm × 50 (plus or minus 5 mm).
- 2 and the thickness of the veneer 4-6 mm. Standard sizes of plywood - 150 × 150cm.
- Screws length 70-80 mm for mounting rails,
- Screws (or nails) length 22-25 mm for securing plywood,
- 3 foam sheet (polyurethane foam) thickness 2 cm, or 2 sheet thickness 3 cm.
- 10 meters of upholstery fabric, or 7 m, if the sofa stands in the wall.
- Parentheses 8-10 mm (brackets type is selected depending on the tool (pneumopistol, or manual stapler);
- Roulette for measuring.
- Sawing plywood and slats need a hacksaw or jigsaw;
- For screwing screws - screwdriver or a screwdriver;
- For nailing foam rubber and cloth - a stapler or pressure gun with a compressor.
- Scissors, knife.
Step One: We prepare the sofa frame
The advantage of this design is that, it is not necessary to use a new material. And timber, plywood and residues which can be either. the main thing, that the material was not damp or decaying. Also, do not necessarily, to rail were standard. But if you decide to use a rack of different width and thickness, Be careful to size, Do not forget, that the torsion rods, their size plus. (scheme 1)
The figure is a schematic skeleton mini couch. Each line corresponds to a separate circuit bar. Bond between them is easy Details. Only note, that mini couch all corners straight, and in the manufacture of kitchen area from a tree with his hands
on the one hand rails are directed inwardly at an angle of 45o structure. The second part of the corner follow a mirror image, that is, in the first half to make a bevel on the left side, and in the second half - to the right. If you look at the top of the frame, it will look like this. (scheme 2)
In the diagram, brown pririsoval little feet. They are not done separately, They are a continuation of stoyakovyh bars. Their height pick and choose: 2cm, or 5 cm. The legs are formed, if the lower transverse slats are not secure at the bottom, and on 2-5 see above. They need to, To reduce the material is not wiping the floor.
Between the bars and gg1 jj1 clearance must be at least 2 cm. It is necessary to stretch the fabric between the seat and the backrest.
If the area make for a dining area, sofa seat should not be too low. The height of the slats and ef e1f1 and correspondingly, distance between cg and should be c1g1 42-43 cm.
Before, how to connect the two parts, in the first, where the screws are inserted, it is necessary to drill a hole through a drill trehmillimetrovym. Screws must be free to enter the connecting piece, and to attract connectable rail.
If you do not,
- Screw screwed into the first rail, hat rested and not attract to himself a second.
- Wood slats may break first voltage from
- If you need repairs in the future, strapped in two rail screws are difficult to get out of this soft wood, as pine. A noise from, oak, birch or screwdriver to unscrew not.
Step two: plywood paneling
At this stage it is ready frame with plywood sheathing. Again turn the creative hemisphere of the brain and remember the goal. You want to put a wall corner, where tested pipe? so, in the side walls need to provide cut-outs for pipes. maybe, be undercut rear bars ad a1d1i angle cut in the plywood according to the arrangement of pipes. In the scheme 3 It shows an arrangement of strips side wall.
If you want to make kitchen with drawers to store any belongings, make seat opening. For this purpose, suitable piano hinges. Then the distance between the bars and gg1 jj1 should be 8-10 cm. true, on the construction markets have special hinges for beds and sofas. Buy such a loop. 2 - For the couch, or 4 to corner. They opened with the seat pushed forward, and then the gap between the bars is standard - 2 cm. seat, performing the function of a cover, need plywood thickness 8 mm. On the inner side of plywood nailed strips for stiffening width 3-4 see from the same plywood. (scheme 4).
There is another option: equip a sofa cabinet with doors. In this case, the bonded eff1e1 added two rail kk1 and ll1. (cm. scheme 1). They fasten the door, trimmed as well as seat, the inside ribs. See diagram 4.
Making the corner of the kitchen drawers for storage, be sure to cut and nail drawer on the bottom fanerku (cabinet), that things are not looked out from under the couch, not lying on the floor and not gathered dust.
Outside door can be covered with fabric, laminated films or varnished. The doors are also made of chipboard, then the ribs are not needed. Screw the handles and magnets, that door is not plowed.
If the kitchen area of the tree will stand against a wall, back plywood can not be nailed. But if he stands somewhere in the middle of the kitchen, somewhere behind the sofa should look the same, as ahead, neatly. Therefore, the rear wall is also obsheyte plywood, but only at the end of work.
professional secret: with plywood paneling, you have to drive nails into the rack, unsupported, Aweigh. Skilled craftsmen work in such cases two hammers. Ask someone from home to hold you down, under the rail of the second hammer, or shod thee toporika. The second hammer must move and be always under the hammer in nails. Then the workpiece will not vibrate, second hammer will incite the bar towards the nail, and the work will go faster.
step three: foam and upholstery fabric
Working two-centimetric foam, the seat put in two layers. Cut the foam to 1 see a large wooden frame. Foam adhesive glue gun, PVA, or pribeyte skobami. Thin, to 2 cm foam can be fastened by a stapler, three-centimeter stick.
If you do openable seat, padded hinge side make descending, otherwise the foam will rest against the back of the trunk and prevent opening. Edges and corners upholster wadding or soft tissue, type vests. This protects the upholstery material from premature abrasion and breaks.
By making the kitchen with his hands in wood, by the proposed method, layman will face the complexity of a cut in the upholstery cover. vykraivaya Case, consider the degree of stretch fabric, drawing direction, fractional thread (edge).
For area with chests upholstered seat separately. The size of the upholstery fabric taken from the calculation: seat size + foam height, + 3see hem and upholstery.
Cover with a cloth piece and fix it with the 4 sides of the center. (scheme 5).
The diagram shows the order numbers nailing to the base fabric. Start with the middle of the nail. then, the angles. Everytime, before the drive bracket, Natya material. But do not pinch the foam more, than a half centimeter, follow, so as not to fill up the corners. This is - a common mistake beginners. Now, When they arrived all the brackets in accordance with the scheme, Turn the piece and the breakdown of tissue along the perimeter. The distance between the brackets 3-4cm.
Back cut out of the calculation - 6 see hem between the seat and back + bgg1b1 + abb1a1+ 2 see foam and + 6 see the back of the hem and nailing. This is the length details. The width of the pattern along the length of the construction is done + 6 cm. on the hem and nailing. Cloth nailed to the side, where are joined halves corner. On the sidewall of the open part of the sofa is sewn. Cut side pieces and stitched to the back side portion. Rear sidewall fabric is folded and nailed.
If you do not corner, a mini-divan, the width of the pattern corresponds to the length of the sofa without seam allowance. Sew the side panels on both sides.
If necessary,, gently nail behind plywood and fabric, Place the next individual sofas Corner. Standing against the wall sofa can be no bond. If necessary,, individual elements connect the steel brackets and hide under the back upholstery fabric.
Kitchen corners from a tree with his own hands, you can make the most different sizes and forms. The proposed variant without armrests. But it is suitable to create a sofa cabinet, Sofa chest. And imagine such an option: Area divides working and dining areas. And if the length of the bars ab and a1b1 do not 17-20 cm, but 30-35, and back instead of plywood and fabric to hang the door trim, you are working to get the kitchen area is another spacious closet.
