Classic Corner Cabinet
Dress up any room with a classic corner cabinet for some handy storage and an attractive display space.
A corner cabinet is a great way to take advantage of a space that’s often wasted in a room. But building one can seem a little bit like taking a geometry test. Getting all the angles right and still presenting an attractive face to the room can be a challenge. On top of that, you’re presented with the choice of whether to build a full-sized, tall cabinet or a shorter base unit. The cabinet shown here offers an eyecatching design with options for either a tall or short version. Best of all, it’s built from inexpensive plywood and poplar — both great choices for painted furniture. And while we used a few unique joinery techniques for the various components of the cabinet, they’re all pretty straightforward and easy to employ. All in all, building this corner cabinet is a nice way to change the look of a room and open up some storage and display space.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
