How to Retrofit an Ottoman for New Legs

On a cold and rainy day in October, I hiked up the pike to Chicago to do this video for Craftsman Tools and Instructables.  My project was an ottoman leg retrofit. There are a few furniture scenarios where this know-how will come in very handy. For one, if  you have an ottoman, chair or sofa with a split or broken off leg,  or you just plain don’t like those boring, built in tapered legs, but you’re not ready to say goodbye to your cozy chair, this is a fairly easy way to slice off the built ins and add some legs that have some pizazz!  (Hint: ModLegs perhaps.)

    Hi, my ottoman has a PLASTIC base and the legs appear to be attached to it. One leg broke and cannot be reset. Is there somewhere I can buy a whole new plastic base with the legs? If not, how do I fix this? Thank you!
