Well i started off research by examining the furniture we have (as well as friends’).
There are several fun tutorials on instructables.
Then i moved on to the recommendations from my 1st post in this series. I really like the idea of a morris-couch. It may end up looking similar to the project post on rockler’s site.
We went to Half Price books and bought some random furniture books and a couple of upholstery guides. As soon as it gets warmer i plan on getting out in the garage to work on it. We only have a small 1-car garage i have been using as a workshop. In Indiana, with no heat, it’s hard to do woodworking until it warms up.
We bought several boardfeet of Walnut to use in making the sofa. We jsut have to finalize a pattern and decide on upholstery style….
1. Cushions on wood platform
2. Coil spring base
3. the wavy spring base
If it works out, I may end up making a second one out of maple.
I still welcome all comments and furniture ideas.
