Published at Tuesday, 28 August 2018. Ottoman Chair. By Inez Sheppard.
This chair design allows for a storage compartment under the seat. The bottom can be made from a lightweight panel and cut to fit the opening perfectly. I chose to attach it with metal L brackets, rather than first strips to maximize the storage space rather than drilling a thumb-sized hole to use to lift the seat to access the storage, I decided to use a screw and a simple loop of twine as a quick pull if I change my mind in the future, I can always add a hole later. I hear it is significantly harder to remove a hole. The spacing in between the slats leaves the storage open for all sorts of creepy crawlers.
A speed square is a handy tool to hold these pieces perpendicular to each other drive a single screw through a leg into the first slot, then recheck for square before driving a second screw and subsequently attach each slat to each leg, because these screws will be in The interior that will not require plugging the shorter front and back slats will be screwed. In from the exterior, I made a guide from an off cut to ensure a consistent spacing for the screws. I also countersunk each hole to recess the screws so that they can be plugged. The short slats will be attached by flushing its mite, together with the long slat and driving one screw in a leg. Slat will do the second screw later.At this point, it would have been nice to have a third hand, as I connect the two sides, together with one screw in each slat. With the chair, standing, plumb and level. The rest of the screws can be driven in. The last three slats are for the backrest. I Drive one screw into the top slot and verify it is horizontal before adding the rest of the screws.
So I set them aside for now. In total I have 2 rear legs, 2 front legs, 6 long, slats and nine short slats. The slots around the chair base will be mitered at 45 degrees on their ends. With my miter gauge and a fence mounted stop block. I made a cut that had a fair amount of tear out to reduce, tear out and mounted a miter gauge fence to support the work piece as it is cut.
