Assembly Hints & Tips

At the beginning you need to detach the parts of the chair from the card – in fact you can snap them off without a tool, but we would recommend using a craft knife or scalpel for a nicer result.

Other tools you can prepare – a cutting mat if you have one ( you can alternatively use some scrap card ), a ruler for the clean folding and a toothpick for applying the glue.

まずはじめに椅子のパーツを紙から切り離します。指で押して切り取れるぐらいのつなぎ目ですが、カッターなどを使うほうが仕上がりがきれいです。

他にあると良いものは、カッターマット(または厚紙など)、まっすぐな折り線のための定規、そしてつまようじです。

glue
We have used all the adhesives pictured above – all work fine and our best recommendations are on the right rather than left.  Copydex and glue sticks such as Pritt are slow to dry,  so that you need more time to complete the model.  You only need a very small amount of glue to stick the parts together and, as shown below, it provides better control if you put a small amount of glue on the left-over card, then use a toothpick to apply it.

上の写真に撮ったのり/接着剤はすべて使えます。が、左から3点は乾きが遅くて完成に時間がかかるでしょう。右端にある日本でしか手に入らない速乾性の木工用ボンドがベストです!これをパーツを外したあとの紙に少しだけ出して、つまようじを使ってのりしろに薄くつけるときれいに仕上がります。

Glue stick such as Pritt are OK to use – you can scoop a small amount using a toothpick.  But often you have to wait a while for a glued part to dry before continuing to the next stage.  We would recommend using fast drying types of glue.

他に何もない場合は、スティックタイプの糊も使えます。その場合はつまようじなどで少しだけ取り分けて薄めにのりしろに付けて指で圧着し、接着面が乾燥して離れなくなってから次のステップに進んでください。
