I am looking for information on upholstered furniture construction. I am going to build a upholstered ottoman and want to see how others constructed theirs. I would like to see how the frame is constructed too.


Thanks

I'm was also looking for info on how to build ottomans. Most of the stuff on the internet doesn't go into detail. I guess its off to the library.
