Storage Ottoman Cube – Cube ottomans are ideal seating for daily use or for special occasions due to their compact size, which makes them easy to move and store. The chair can also work as a footrest or side table as an articulation piece. Building your own ottoman allows you to customize the case of the plywood base with a variety of fabric choices and patterns to complement the furniture of any room. The homemade cube can be completed with a decorative border to enhance the appearance.
Place the 2-inch by 4-inch stud (2×4) on a flat surface and measure four lengths of 17 inches. Cut the bolt into four same pieces with a manual or electric saw. Place one of the 17-inch square plywood planks in a flat workspace. Measure and mark each 4 1/4 inches. Drill a drop in each of the four marks with a small part of an electric drill. Line one of the 2x4s against the edge of the left side of the plywood board. Screw one 1 1/2 inch cover screw into each of the holes.
Place two of the plywood plates together at a 90-degree angle in the corner with only one of the 2×4 supports inside. Keep them in place. You may need an extra pair of hands. Screw three or four screws to enter the edge and in the 2×4 for fixing. Repeat the process with the remaining plates until you have a bucket without a lid. Put on the last wooden beam on the top of the cube and join the edges. Place the top to the base at the four corners by screwing down on the 2×4 brackets.
