Easier to build 36" corner base kitchen cabinet plans from Ana-White.com
1 - sheet 3/4" plywood (we used prefinished PureBond in Maple)
1 - sheet 1/4" plywood (we used prefinished PureBond in Maple)
scrap 3/4" plywood for supports

2 - 3/4" plywood @ 34-1/2" x 22-1/4" (sides)
2 - 1x4s or scrap plywood pieces @ 34-1/3" long (back supports)
1 - 3/4" plywood @ 5" x 15" (bottom support)
1 - 3/4" plywood @ 5" x 34-3/4" (support support)
2 - 1/4" plywood @ 34-1/2" x 35-1/2" (back)
2 - 1x2 @ 27"
2 - 1x2 @ 13-1/2"
2 - 1x2 @ 12-3/4"
DOOR SIZE FOR FULL OVERLAY
11-5/8" x 28-1/2"
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
You can get all the pieces cut from a single sheet of plywood if you are careful. I'd cut the bottom off first for the two sides at 34-1/2", and then cut the two side out of the remaining pieces. You'll have to use your jigsaw to cut the toekicks and inside corner of the top and bottom. See step 2 and 3 for sizes on the top, bottom and sides.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Love this plan!
So exciting to see the Momplex kitchens! I'm definitely with you on the occasional bouts of "over-building." Hubby sometimes teases me, "Even if the house falls down, that shelf will still be standing!" hee hee :) Love the simpler plan for this corner. I have one of those flimsy ones with the circular interior wall. I so wish it were like this one! The original had the doors attached to the front of the lazy susan. Can't tell you how many times I caught my fingers in there before finally removing it and replacing the doors. I left the interior open to stand up cookie sheets and big cutting boards. After building a pantry and island inspired by your plans, there was plenty of storage in our kitchen so we could use that corner for stand-up storage.
Loving the glimpses of the finishes too! Does this side of the Momplex have the same type of floating floors? The cabinet color is great too - what is the name of the color you used?
Looks fab! :)

Grey base cabinet color?
Ana I'd love to know what color you painted those base cabinets? Please say Iron Mountain? I'm smack in the middle of painting our kitchen cabs, uppers white and bases iron mountain but now I'm thinking I love your choice. Please share!

Yo mention that all the pieces can be cut from a single sheet of plywood. It appears one of the cust has to be started in the center, how do you get it started in the middle?

Plunge cut in the 'vertical'
Plunge cut in the 'vertical' section with your circular saw. Finish the cut with a jigsaw

Is a scaled down version possible?
Im currently reconfiguring my kitchen cabinets. I have a "corner spot" where I'd like to have a corner base like this one but the opening is much smaller than 36"....more like 28". Im just wondering how a more narrow version would work??
Even if I cant have the lazy susan inside I'd still like to have the corner unit with regular shelves.

I'm working with pre finished PureBond plywood and was wondering if this is something I still need to put a sealer on? polyurethane?
thanks for the help and the wonderful plans!
