Oak Corner Cabinet

This cabinet was built to replace a more formal sideboard and china cabinet we used to have in the dining room before we removed the wall and opened it up to the kitchen. The oak table and chairs from the kitchen were moved into this room making it impossible to keep the dark walnut pieces that used to be there. So I built this large unit which holds all the dishes, bowls and glassware that the other two pieces held and since it sits off into a corner it takes up very little room. It's made of solid oak and oak face plywood. I also used an antique glass in the top doors to give the cabinet a older feel.

  • This is so impressive! What was your favorite part of this cabinet project?

  • I think my favorite thing about this project is the satisfaction of designing the piece from scratch. I looked around in all my woodworking books and online to see if plans existed for a corner cabinet of this size and I couldn't find anything.  So I went to my drawing board,  made templates, and started cutting and dry fitting to make sure it would all work and as you can see, it did.  I was so happy using the Ryobi 18volt circular saw while cutting the shelves.  It was so easy manipulating that light saw on all the diagonal cuts I needed to make that was done in a short time.
