« Part 5: The last few mortises Part 6 of Selig ottoman series Part 7: Finished! »

The weather was so nice this week that I setup a makeshift work surface outside to do all of the final sanding, glue-up, and finishing on the ottoman.
Sanding was a long process, as expected. Each piece was taken through grits 100, 120, 180, 220, 320, and 400.

One final dry fit:

Glued and clamped:

Finished with Odie’s Oil and now waiting in line for cushions.

Webbing straps installed:

For the chair and ottoman, I made some leg pads from a full-grain leather thrift store belt. I glued them to the legs with some contact cement.

The build looks nice but the view of your backyard is pretty awesome.

Dan – Thanks, I feel fortunate to have that view. It was a major reason why my wife and I bought the house.
