My IT department had recently been outsourced and I always wanted to start a Handyman business and one of the first jobs I was asked to do was build a corner cupboard. I had never built anything this involved but after finding some plans online and studying them I felt confident I could pull it off. I built the whole thing in our dining room, my fiancĂ© was very patient. It’s built from oak plywood and solid oak trim. The customer wanted a dark stain to match her other furniture. When you open the doors on top it has a glass shelf with 1/4” mirror around the back. After I installed it she wanted mirror in the open area as well. She was very happy and I gained more skills to build more projects.

What a shame you had to give up clicking a mouse all day in exchange for a meaningless life of creating beautiful furniture that people will enjoy for decades.

Great corner cabinet.
