This compact corner linen closet will put unused space in your bathroom to work. This story is an introduction and overview of the project.
Corner Linen Cabinet

Corner cupboards put unused space to work. This compact closet is designed to hold linens or towels. It's small enough to tuck into a hallway by the bathroom, the bathroom itself, or a corner of a bedroom. Don't be put off by the handsome doors; there's no fancy joinery involved in building them.

Materials and finishing
The face frame and doors of this cabinet are made of birch plywood and solid poplar that look great when painted. You might choose to make these parts of oak and matching plywood or of another hardwood with a clear finish. The sides and shelves, which won't be visible with the doors closed, are made of lauan plywood, which doesn't take paint quite as smoothly as birch but still looks fine and is a bit less expensive.

About 16 hours to construct, plus finishing time
