How to Build a Sofa/Couch #4: platform finished...almost there!!!

05-25-2010 11:49 PM by dakremer | 14 comments »

I am sorry I do not have a lot of time before going to work, so I will not be able to write a whole bunch. I finished the platform today. All that is left is the backrest. I will hopefully have that finished tomorrow, and then all that is left is the pillows, and legs. Here are some pictures of what it looks like so far. sorry this has to be so short, but I am running out of time…if you have any questions, just ask me, otherwise maybe I can post more about it later on – i jus...

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #2: Springs in the platform

05-23-2010 08:30 AM by dakremer | 13 comments »

Installing the springs is almost complete. I am choosing to install coil springs that are all hand tied together. This method is called “8-way hand tied.” The benefit of this method is that it is stronger, it lasts way longer, and is more comfortable than sinuous springs. Sinuous springs (or “S” springs) is what most furniture companies use today. They do the job, but like most things these days, they aren’t made to last. They also save furniture companies ...

How to Build a Sofa/Couch #1: Arm Rests

05-22-2010 11:59 PM by dakremer | 8 comments »

DISCLAIMER: Before I start this blog, I want to make sure everyone knows that I am NOT a professional sofa/furniture builder. I just took on this project because 1) I needed a sofa and 2) because I thought it’d be really fun and satisfying if I built my own sofa. This is all my own design, and besides looking at a few pics on the internet, this is all my OWN method of doing it. That being said – for any of you professional sofa builders out there, I am sorry if I’m not d...

Dovetail....Need I Say More?

05-19-2010 12:56 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 5 comments »

Dovetail… is there another word in woodworking that brings more reaction and sense of nostalgia? The word alone has come to mean craftsmanship and brings back memories of the past. For myself I picture an old master in his shop taking time to layout and mark each tail, meticulously cutting with smooth strokes of the saw, marking and cutting the pins for a tight fit, and then adjusting the cuts with a razor sharp chisel to make sure the joint comes together perfectly. The amazing part is th...
