I am building cabinets for a kitchen the problem I have is with an upper corner cabinet. I make my cabinets 14” deep so you can put a 12” platter on the inside . My corner cabinet can only come 21” inches from the corner because that is where the wall opens up for a bar. I did a full scale layout on plywood and the door is really small, if you put it at a 45. I also did in an “L” shape and things still seem small. My customer wants a lazy susan in the cabinet. So I feel a little restricted in what I can do. Whatever suggestions can be had would be extremely helpful.

Thanks Chris

So is the space for the cabinet 21 deep X 21 wide? Full overlay doors? euro or face frame? Is one side of cabinet a finished end?

2” Face frame. I have 21” on one side I could make the other side as big as I wanted, I just that would make it hard to find a lazy susan that would fit.

So you could have a bifold door. Inside the cabinet have shelves on one side and the standard lazy susan on the other.

i added a corner overhead with a 90 degree door.. looks like two small raised panel doors with the faceframe right angled between them.. but it’s one door with a lazy susan behind it. i built the ls using glass marbles for bearings… just routed a channel for the marbles on both the stationary bottom and the round shelf. the marbles can’t escape and they are not seen.. and it’s been working for 20+ years.

might not be the right solution for you. i have a hard time without something to look at.. i seldom work from plans, usually the loml finds a picture in a magizine then shows me the spot it needs to fit in

-- it's not a sickness, i can stop buying tools anytime i want

...the door dosn’t even need to be a bifold. You could build it ridgid with the hinged side being the short side and the larger door to the left.

On bentlyj’s drawing you could also use the 10” cabinet as open shelves. We have one of those and my wife loves it for display. Looks like a good solution. I usually design from the corner out.
