| This Corner Cabinet is reminiscent of cabinets found in rural
Scandinavian homes. Because these were utilitarian cabinets, they were often
made of the least expensive lumber -- native pine. The joinery was equally
simple and straightforward -- butt joints held together with nails.
We followed tradition in our choice of wood, but we "upgraded" the
joinery a bit. We also designed the back so the cabinet will fit tightly in a
corner, even if the corner isn't exactly 90 degrees.
CONSTRUCTION. We built our cabinet out of clear, quartersawn,
3/4"-thick Ponderosa pine. The overall size of the Scandinavian Corner
Cabinet is 21-3/4" wide x 14-1/4" deep x 30-1/4" high.
