Ottoman Tray

Submitted by Milhouse on Sat, 04/07/2012 - 22:51

I have a large, square ottoman in my family room that looked empty and I didn't have anywhere to put a drink. The cheapest tray I could find that was large enough was $80 and it was damaged! So I slapped some boards together, and this is what I got. I love it! I joined a few boards together for the bottom, using my Kreg Jig, and attached a frame of 1x3's around the perimeter (I mitred the corners).
