Ours will be framed in drywall. I opted for an arched niche above for colorful pottery.


Nollie, I cannot wait to see your finished kitchen!!

RE: More practicalities: kitchen drawers (Follow-Up #27)

Yep. The corner drawers pull straight out. There is some lost space, but they actually hold about as much as pie cut susans (i.e., with the 90 degree corner rather the full circle with a diagonal corner).

This is now my plastics drawer. Tried the dish thing, but I'm just not a dishes in drawers person:

open drawer

There are a couple of modifications to the Blum plan here. They show a square back to the drawer which extends so the back is past the counter and the corners are under it, and has an added triangle in the back to fill the space. I thought this was weird and wasteful. There was a picture of the corner drawer online which had a pointy back that follows the shape of the opening and fully extends with usable space, and the sides extending back to where the rails clip in. My cabinetmaker, once I explained what I wanted, did one better, and made the drawers to go all the way back to the wall. This way they're not full extension, but it gains me several extra inches of storage space, so in the end it is actually competitive with the full circle susan.

Here's a sketch of how the drawer is constructed:
