Corner Cabinet

I needed a storage cabinet in the games room but it had to be one that didn’t interfere with the snooker table. A corner cabinet was the solution. essentially made from veneered plywood with a light 2”x1” frame built into the wall.
Now I am thinking of making an overhead cupboard to match.

Great use of room dead space. Be a nice place to rest
while awaiting your turn at the table.

Once you put in an upper cabinet, you will have problems with the cues. I remember having a couple of 3’ cues for the posts and pillers in our basement as a kid.

Great job.

Is it really a snooker table or is that what they call pool tables down under?

Very nice solution for storage and as rpmurphy said, good use of dead space.

Karson, we use it for snooker, pool & Billiards. In fact any game you can roll a ball along. The grand children like to play roll the ball because they are a little young yet for cues. It’s a 3/4 table 8’x4’ (or 4’x8’ in your parts). You can see it in my first project. I will leave a gap between the cupboards to allow room for cueing.

Looks like a great storage solution there Grumpy. I don’t think i’ve even seen a snooker table in 20 years around these parts.

Nice job, Grumpy! Another benefit of being a woodworker – you can MAKE what you need, instead of improvising with something from the store.

Ron, It’s a Silkwwod veneer on plywood with a mahogony stain then laquered. silkwood has a very tight grain & sands very well to a nice finish.

me? no.. that was pure luck, that and Rick always makes the trickiest shots he can think of to make the game a little more equal. But it was a legitimate “game” and he didn’t let me win… I won it fair and square :)
