My Daughter in law asked me to build a corner cabinet
for the grand kids bedroom, just like one she saw in a
Country General Store that she worked at when she was
in college I told her that I would try to get some plans but
she said that I could go to the store and measure
and take photos of the one that she wanted.
I finished the cabinet with a coat of satin white paint
the color that she asked for.
When she came to look at the finished job she said it
was almost perfect, all it she wanted me to do was to sand
some of the corners so that the bare wood would show.
I had never before taken the finish off a project like this.

I love the cabinet. What did you do to give strength to the inside corner of the shelves

Nicely done. great use of corner space in a kids room. Same question as John… strength of inside corners?
