Make an upholstered footstool with storage

DAY CLASS BEGINNER OR INTERMEDIATE
Learn to make a footstool with storage and an upholstered top. This project is built using 18mm Birch Veneered Ply and uses techniques of biscuit and pocket hole joinery. It is a great way to not only learn different joinery skills and learn how to use different power tools, but you also get to take home a project that you will get plenty of use out of, if not a terrific gift for a loved one.

  • Learn to make and construct a footstool.
  • Learn to make an upholstered top.
    • You will need to bring half square meter of a fabric of your choice, please.
    • 2″ thick foam (400mm x 400mm)
    • Wadding (400mm x 400mm)

Please note that the foam and wadding can be purchased at the woodshop, prices are below but bring your fabric.
