About This Project

I built my new sofa!
I am so happy how it turned out. I had to translate all the instuctions in french, and modify the dimensions to adapt them to the lumbers I found in my country (France)
I had to change inches in centimeters too.
It was just a little difficult but I built it!!!
Thank you so much Ana, I am one of your fan.

I did not find Kreg Jig, but I found another "mark" who proposes the same system.It is less good than Ana's Kreg Jig, but I had no choice. In any case, that works. Thank you for your comments and sorry for my bad English.

Did you use a mattress for your cushion? Did the plan fit that for you, or did you have to modify?

I don't know the size of a twin mattress but my pillow measures 180cm of length and 60 cm deep for a thickness of 14cm. I bought a foam mattress of 90cm of wide and of 190cm of length and I cut it. They are the size of a child bed in France.The size of wood are different here thus the sofa has no same dimensions as on Ana's plans. I adjusted according to the wood available here.
