Using a rag I made sure all of the pieces were sawdust free and then I finished off the wood, with a coat of Minwax to ensure that there aren't any splitting. While I assemble the Box, I pre-drilled all my holes now. I know that the side panels are going to be drilled into a 2x4, so what I did was basically use a 2x4 as a spacer. I also drilled pilot holes into my two by fours, just in case for this step. All I'm doing is gluing and screwing. The 2x4 onto the panels to create the front and the pocket attach on the side of the box is pretty straightforward.
I made my cushion out of a piece of one inch foam. The stuff is pretty easy to cut. I just use an Exact knife now this part is totally optional and it might be actually a little extra too, but I wanted my cushion to be foam all over. So basically, I just cut a piece of plywood that was half an inch smaller on all sides, and then I filled that space with pieces of foam. Once I had all my pieces cut, I used spray adhesive to glue all the pieces together. The spray adhesive is great because it works on a lot of different materials. I decided to use leather for my cushion but feel free to use whatever you have at hand, I purchased my leather at a place called Tandy Leather.
When I was doing this, I really wanted those other to be taught, so I pulled on the second side pretty hard before stapling it onto the plywood, depending on the material that you are using. You may need to trim away some bulk for a cleaner full, so unfortunately I actually ran out of staples, but thanks to part of improvising, I actually figured out a way to screw in the leather onto the plywood to attach the answer onto the cushion. I first started by adding some hot glue to temporarily hold the two pieces together at this point. It helps to put something heavy or you could put your entire weight on it like I did to make sure the two pieces first stuck together.
