Maximize materials use. There are no odd looking scraps with circular saw cuts and possibly square edges laying in your scrap pile.  Instead, you are left with standard width boards that you can build more cabinets or furniture with.  Bonus: a standard practice is to rip plywood into 12, 16 or 24 widths for the least amount of waste. Simplify cutting.  Anyone that’s every cut random sized rectangles out of plywood knows this is easier said than done.  If you can’t cut all the way through with a circular saw or tablesaw, you have to cut beyond the cut or finish the cut with a jigsaw or handsaw.  And then you are working with a piece of plywood with a piece cut out of it.  By ripping into widths to start out, all you have to do when you build is make straight cross cuts. Better cuts.  By making full length rips and cross cuts, you are always making long straight cuts which tend to be more accurate than following along a chalk line.  And a good cut is very important in making square cabinets – especially when they all line up in a row! Easier to handle/transport.  Well, I’ll admit it.  Picking up a sheet of 3/4″ plywood is heavy.  And trying to fit it in my car is impossible.  Having the nice guy – or gal – at the hardware store rip it into 16″ widths first just makes everything easier. So this corner cabinet has been keeping me up at night, nagging at me to create a design from 1x24s as we call them (they are really 3/4″ thick x 22 3/4″ wide).  Sure, cutting out 3 foot by 3 foot shapes for the bottom and shelves, and then more for the sides and backs would make a very strong cabinet.  But it will use a ton of plywood up and create quite a few challenges.  It’s absolutely a great way to go if you’ve got the tools and budget and I’ll be posting more complicated corner cabinet plans shortly.

I am so excited about this plan. When we built our house, the cabinet man was awful. We fired him and have lived with a less than ideal kitchen. We have all the tools we need, but until now I could find no straight forward plans for cabinets. I very much like your thrift when cutting lumber. In my previous life I used to make cutting diagrams for aluminum storefront (I was the estimator) for the guys in the shop to follow. Do you plan on making the upper cabinet? How about a tall pullout pantry? An oven cabinet. Again, thanks. I admire you also for dealing with the dark. I could never live in Alaska. Jane

Example of a mid-sized trendy home design design in Kent — HouzzAdd a magic corner. Another great storage solution is a “smart” corner with pullout shelves, Lazy Susans or wire shelves on tracks, such as this unit from specialized hardware-maker Richelieu. Use these nifty storage solutions to gain access to otherwise wasted space, where you can keep large pots and pans, small appliances and other bulky items. They tuck into cabinets nicely and provide easy access when needed, helping to create a more organized kitchen. — dcm175 EmbedEmailQuestion

In this diagram, I took the top off for a better view. These 1x2s will help square up your cabinet, and also give you something to screw the cabinet to the wall. Make sure the boards are secured with glue and screws to the cabinet. For heavier loads, you can use a wider width board or add additional supports in the middle.

Yeah sure, we would be happy for you to use it, as long as we get a back link to our website! That unit in the corner is infact a corner fridge, built into our furniture. It uses a dry-refrigeration so you can put things like cereals and other dry good in it to keep them cool and preserve them better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hutch from Obsolute Garbage I ordered 16 cabinets and 8 of them showed up with something wrong with them. 2 of them were able to be fixed, even tho I should not have had too. The other six are a pile of scrap wood. Drawers not even attached to the cabinets, back of drawers snapped in half. Screws sticking out of the face of the cabinet ruining the finish. A lot of the corner were broke. Staples not in the whole away the backs were coming off of them. I will never even consider using these again. I bought these on sale a couple months before I needed them and left them in the packages, so home depot would not do anything to help. Buyers beware these are garbage!!!!! Date published: 2016-06-20

Next attach the sides to tops and bottoms. Drill the 3/4″ pocket holes first facing forward for attaching face frames in later steps. The adjacent cabinet will cover the pocket holes, and if this is an end cabinet, you will put 1/4″ plywood over the end to finish it out.

That way, you gain access to the whole area, and the other half can be used for drawers etc. Not cheap, of course, especially when you are DIYing. But I do find things get “lost” in corner cabinets.

From the 18 3/4″ wide strips, cut two pieces 32 1/8″ long. Then from those pieces, mark as shown in this diagram, and cut out top and bottom. Use this also as a pattern to cut remaining shelf – it can be a little smaller, especially on the pointed corner ends, as it’s just the shelf.

To install, you always start with the corner first and then work your way around. Corners need to be screwed to a stud in the wall and properly hung. I know these cabinets can get heavy, so make sure you have adequate support. There will be a 1/2″ gap between cabinets to give you some “wiggle” room in case your walls aren’t perfectly square. Just make sure the face frames line up perfectly. Shim the gap and screw cabinets together from insides. We also like to hide a few screws to connect face frame to face frame for a seamless look.
