I made this Ottoman for our boat where extra storage is always appreciated. I had the top cushion made at an upholstery shop and then I added the 1/8” piece of plywood which I applied some formica to. This not only covers up the staples, it also acts to keep the cushion from sliding off the top of the ottoman by recessing into it. The Ottoman is made out of Spalted Maple as is the bottom of the tray insert. The sides of the tray are cherry. When the tray is removed, flipped over and reinserted the Ottoman acts as a little cocktail table for in front of the couch. The corners of the Ottoman are held together by biscuits. Stainless steel handles were used. I wanted to keep the Ottoman low to the floor due to the roll of the boat so I made 4 feet, 1/4” thick by 3” by 4” out of leopard wood which I routed a beed around. Glued and pin nailed to bottom of Ottoman.
Thanks for taking a look,
