How Do I Build an Easy Corner Cabinet?

Corners of rooms have been neglected as long straight walls have taken the focus, with furniture on display in front of their sleek lines. Once very popular, corner cabinets have been relegated to antique shops as modern design and unfussy decor are now favoured by today's homeowner. However, with their triangular shape, a corner can easily become an efficient storage space.

Instructions

1 Determine your dimensions. An effective corner cupboard should be at least 12 inches deep.

2 Cut one piece of 1/2-inch plywood at least 12 inches wide by whatever length you have determined you need. Cut a second piece 1/2-inch wider than the first piece.

3 Run a bead of carpenter's glue along both edges, then clamp the two pieces together, with the shorter piece butting up against the longer one. Screw together from the long side using 1-inch screws.

4 Measure the top of the cabinet from front to back on either side and across the face of the cabinet and cut a piece of plywood to fit. Do the same with the bottom. Glue, then screw the pieces into place.

5 Mount the shell of the cabinet onto the wall with screws or leave freestanding.

1 Attach the channels for the shelving to either side of the cabinet with screws. Check for plumb before screwing them in place. Add the brackets.

2 Measure the interior dimensions and cut shelving from the plywood to fit. Set the shelves in place.

3 Nail moulding strips to the front of the cabinet, using finish nails.

4 Measure the front opening and cut a piece of plywood or better quality wood for a door.

5 Attach the door with hinges.

6 Finish by countersinking the nail holes with the nailset, fill with putty, and paint or stain the cabinet.
