The working process
for the works of their own hands Instruction consists of several stages, indicated in the diagram. Below clearly shows all the important moments of the working process and recommendations for the work.
The work consists of several stages
Let us examine the process:
- Carved wood panels and foam. The shield is generally better order already in the right size, then you will not have to do this work and waste will not. As for the foam, it is cut exactly the same size as the wood base, used for building a knife with a sharp blade, which is conducted with a ruler or a wooden rail;
Foam and wooden shield must have the same size
- foam is marked. First you have to draw a horizontal line, which will be located buttons. Then they do the same distance through the label. The number and location of the step depends on your plan, there may be any number, and they can be arranged in a different order. The photo is made by marking a staggered arrangement of the buttons;
- The foam rubber are cut holes. For this taken knife with a sharp end and a narrower blade, they carefully made small diameter slot;

From the bottom side and interior sintepon align with the edges and accurately fixed stapler if enough margin, it is possible to bend the edge of the rear portion of the base;
Sintepon fastened together with upholstery material using stapler
