This is a traditional built-in corner cabinet made in Rustic Hickory and Black Walnut. It goes well with the style of the Morris Chair as well as the Red Oak flooring and woodstove coziness. The angled modules add a lot of space that my wife wanted for large picture books but were more difficult to make. The angled dovetail was tricky. I was glad I made the right side as one long board instead of allowing breaks at each module. Also notice the use of sliding doors to allow access when the doors are blocked. I finished with Danish oil and poly. Regards.

Interesting angles. Must have been a challenge to figure out.

BlueRidgeDog. I used Sketchup. You can draw anything and it figures out the angles. Making it real is the hard part.

I too use SketchUp….actually bought a license I use it so much. Furniture is only a secondary use as the primary is 3D design.

I mind is a terriable thing to waste. And there no waste here. An excellent job for a small space. Like your idea. It all starts with an idea. Nice follow thru.

Magnificant! You had some serious play with geometry.

That is really cool. I agree with the previous poster…the geometry on this is mind boggling.

You can never go wrong with the rustic outlook. It can easily be matched with almost any theme at all. I would really love a corner cabinet for my own storage needs because that space is often under utilised.

What an interesting way to fit your cupboard storage into a corner! If you didn’t have the skills to do this, I reckon you might just end up with some poorly design cabinets that don’t make use of the space!
