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.
