What was the "flexible board" that you used for the ottoman?
i only know it as Masonite. Normally a hard compressed board used as a backing to TV cabinets etc. sometimes has a white finish on one side for show purposes. Normally 3mm thick. Cuts easily but can leave feathers on the cut edge. Bends well but snaps just as easily. Cannot be wet like plain wood to shape it, the glue comes undone and it swells.

You must have a similar product.

Yes we have Masonite. I thought it might be something exotic like:

That looks like a really nice product to work with. We don't have that here. Those ribs look strong. I had to make ribs out of plain wood. This product would have saved time.
