My wife needed a place to sit while watching tv in the bedroom and a place to put all of the decorative pillows that us guys just don’t see the need for.

Very nice! I like that it has multiple uses. I would probably store folded laundry on it, lol.

Nice job, curious as to how the legs were made and how the bottom shelf is joined to the legs.

Renners, the wife gave me a picture of what she wanted and I made a cardboard template to match as closely as the picture would allow. I milled and glued poplar to make a 3×3 piece of stock. I then copied the template to two adjacent sides of the stock, set my bandsaw table to a 30° and cut on the outside of the template line. I then sanded to the line. I cut a dado approximately 3” from the top so I could insert the bottom of the bench seat in the four corners. I then used dowels to fasten the sides to the 3/4” bottom. There are no dowels between the sides and legs, only glue. The fit is very tight. I used brackets on the inside of the seat for reinforcment. I did the same on the bottom shelf using a dado.
I hope this answers your question. If not try again. I can even take closeups if you like.
