Bought a piece of junk ottoman from a local furniture store, after the fabric and padding came apart I decided to rebuild it. Used the feet and frame and used .25” oak plywood to cover the plywood inside and out. Stain and poly finish on the outside, tung oil on the interior. Pleather top and fake oak trim finished out the project. The top lifts up for storage and has two spring assist hinges.

Only true woodworkers would add spring assist hinges to an ottoman! Great job!
