Step 1

Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood prior to assembly.

Cut the pieces for the legs, the side stretchers, and the side panels. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the side stretchers.

Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in all four edges of each panel. Secure the stretchers to the panels using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The back face of the panels will be flush with the back face of the stretchers.

Secure the side assemblies to the legs using glue and 2-1/2” pocket hole screws through the stretchers into the legs, and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws through the panels into the legs.

Cut the pieces for the drawer fronts. Mark the position for the drawer pulls and drill the holes. Shim the drawer front in the opening – there will be a 1/8” gap around all sides – then drive screws through the holes for the drawer pulls into the drawer box. Open the drawer, and secure the drawer front using countersunk 1-1/4” screws from the inside. Remove the screws from the holes for the drawer pull then finish drilling the holes. Install the drawer pull.

For the larger drawers fronts, start by shimming the lower piece in place with a 1/8” gap between the 1x3 piece and the stretcher. Secure in place using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails. Place the 7/8” piece above the 1x3 piece with a 1/8” gap, and secure with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails. Place the remaining 1x3 piece above the 7/8” piece with a 1/8” gap, and secure with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails. Repeat for the other large drawer.

This fabulous ottoman pairs perfectly with the Sawyer Adirondak Outdoor Chair! What an amazing duo of DIY furniture these two projects are! The most difficult portion of this plan is the freehand cutting, and even that should actually be a bit of a fun challenge, nothing to difficult that you can’t tackle! All of the marking and and measuring should be quite fun! Did I mention this plan is inexpensive to build?

Step 1

Cut Out your Legs: The first diagram shows you the lengths of each side you will cut and the actual dimensions of your leg unit. You will need two identical units like this that will mirror each other so you may want to flip your sheet to mark out the other panel. The image below shows you where these cuts sits relative to the edges of your plywood. 

Step 2

Cut Out your Legs: This is your guide for locating your leg panel. It helps you place your panel properly so you can get the correct angles without working overtime with fancy cuts and tools. Use a jigsaw or circular saw to cut this shape out of your plywood sheet. You will need two of these that mirror each other, so consider flipping your sheet over to place your second panel. 

Step 3

Attach the Ottoman Aprons: Using your Kreg Jig® set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue you will fasten the pieces together as shown below. The Aprons will be placed 1 1/4” from the top of the Front Edge and the Top of the Back edge.

Step 4

Rip your Slats down to Size: Beginning with a 1x6, you will rip your boards into a 4 1/2” width (shaving off 1” from the actual width of a 1x6) and then tack them down 1/2” from the Top Edge of the Top Leg, and space them 1” Apart. Use Galvanized Nails or Screws to Fasten in Place.
