« Part 4: Edge round-overs Part 5 of Selig ottoman series Part 6: Final steps »

The outer mortises on the short end of the seat frame were the only ones remaining to cut. To mark their locations, I first made half-width tenons for the ends of the long sides, which would allow me to position the leg structure, but also allow it to slide to expose its existing mortises for transferring their locations to the seat frame.

After marking the center of each mortise, it was back to the mortising jig for the final mortises.

Everything fits. Just a little more edge shaping left and I’ll be ready to start sanding.

Can see i missed a few posts here, looks great. Again neat work and a classic design, perfect!
Are you going to make a project post on the final product together with the chair?

Thanks! The ottoman is going together faster than the chair, so that’s a plus. I’m glad I decided to start it right away.

I’ll definitely make a project post when both chair and ottoman are finished. I have the cushion fabric and my wife has kindly offered to make the cushions.
