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?

Did the plan fit the mattress exactly or did you have to modify it?

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.
