corner cabinet

This corner piece was constructed out of cherry with a chestnut stain. The interior is made out of birch and was left natural so that items would not get lost in a dark corner. Corner pieces can be challenging to build due to having limited space. There are four hand turned columns which makes this a unique and original design that stands out from others. As all of my creations this was made out of solid wood with classic mortise and tenon joinery. Solid construction that will last forever. This is truly a one of a kind piece that is classy and functional and I’d have to say that it’s one of my favorites.

Excellent looking piece and the legs give it some character. Nice thought out design and joinery.

That finish is very nice. Could you tell us more about the finish? And yes … how is the drawer connected at the front corner?

Hey everyone I just found this site and thought I’d try it out. Thanks so much for all the shout outs. It’s much appreciated.

@ JC and nomercadies in regards to the drawer it’s connected by wooden tracks that the drawer slides on. The key is to have 2 tracks that are routed into the bottom of the drawer and then there are 2 strips of wood that act as drawer glides in which the routed tracks fit into. Using 2 tracks keeps the drawer operating more smoothly. Also, the bottom of the drawer should be at least 1/2” thick. The finish is hand rubbed using a foam brush with 4 coats of polyurethane. Hope that answers your questions

Beautiful picece – and a great way to make something special out of a useless corner of the room. I am curious why the shelf is so shallow – do you have something specific in mind for the cabinet?

@ kookaburra thanks for the compliment. When I was building this piece I was thinking that it could be used as a liquor cabinet and so the shallow shelf would allow for taller bottles (or any other tall items) to be stored in front.
