Otto the Ottoman (7 Sided)

Prompt: Use  a  4'x4'  piece  of  plywood  to  create  something  with minimal  to  no  waste.

I  needed  an ottoman.  But  what  shape?  I  thought  of  all  the  shapes ever,  and  7  sided  furniture  is  quite  sparse  in  this  world, so  I  knew  what  I  had  to  do.  But a closed object?  No.  Where  would  I  put  my  little books  and games? It has to have storage. And I  want  my own  checkerboard  for  Checkers!  That's  how  Otto  the Ottoman  was  born.

The top of the ottoman is double-sided. One side is a foot cushion and the other side doubles as a checkerboard.
