Ottoman Box

Starting with just the wooden panels, in these 25 classes you will learn how to make an ottoman box that is fully lined on the inside and the outside.

By the end of Foundation Level Five, you will know how to make your own ottoman box with a hinged lid that opens with a gas strut. You will learn how to choose the size of your ottoman, how to cut the foam and how to make the upholstered lid, sides and ends.
