Ok it's been a while since I've last used 3DSMax; I hope I can still help.

It looks like he is moving to the Editable Poly layer of the chair top, then manually splitting the edges of the cube (or subdividing it).
I can't exactly remember how to do it, but splitting edges is pretty easy (I can see a button on that screenshot).
Then you just click on meshsmooth layer again and it re-smoothes it using the new mesh.
Because it's more subdivided the corners of the top now have more weight on them so the chair top looks more square.

I have done this tut before. He is just subdividing the poly so the meshsmooth makes it more rectangular than circular.

Just add some edges to the large poly. It seemed to be explained as to what he was doing, just select edge and use the cut utility. You might want to use snaps for this to get it just right.
