Have you ever had a hard time finding a use for that space underneath the steps of a spiral staircase? I have. When we moved into our latest home back in 2009, we didn’t know what to do with the centrally placed spiral staircase in the great room. We tried to place the couch up against it or love seat, nothing seemed to work, and however we tried to arrange our furniture the flow of traffic was alway disrupted. So I let the creative juices flow and came up with a solution to the problem.
This under spiral staircase cabinet serves its purpose well as our living room entertainment center, and has given a major boost to the feng shui and overall function of this area of the house. It is primarily birch plywood with poplar edgebanding. Construction methods are pretty much restricted to dado slots for all of the interlocking parts, glue, screws, and taking plenty of time with the careful layout. Finish applied was a slight orange colored dye with lacquer over that, my wife loves the color of orange. I built this piece in my shop with just a few notes about the space it needed to fit. I was pretty excited when I brought it up to the house and it twist fit right into place. Try this out to turn that unusable space into a multi-functional staircase/cabinet.
-- Peace be with you!
