Well I took a crack at this corner cabinet and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Not difficullt at all, but I would do it differently if I ever do another one, which I probably will. Love having all drawers on the bottom, especially under the sink.

You've created what you wanted and the boss is happy. What more could you ask for?

'Certainly looks like you had fun building drawers.

I still don't think that all drawers is a wise move but you and the boss are happy with it and that is just about all that counts!

Enjoy and nice work!

How hard is it to remove the one under the sink for the inevitable plumbing issue?

It's easy. The drawer isn't nearly as heavy as it looks and the slides are quick release. The hardest part is reaching both slide releases at the same time. I've already had it in and out myself at least half a dozen times.

Unfortunately for me my wife some of those corner drawers a while back and has decided that these are the solution to corners, she doesn't like lazy-susans. While the space is separated more, I think the actual useful space is about the same. A big corner pull-out with a lazy-susan would work ok as well.
I used to think like Burt on having the cupboards on the bottom and the drawers on top. But my mothers kitchen has cupboard doors, but all the internal shelves are just pull-out platforms. The down side is that there is no height adjustability, but the reality for my mom was that pulling the entire shelf (open drawer? bin?) out makes the space much more usable than low shelves behind the doors.
Now I am going to show my bride tmitchells pics, she may let me buy some stuff yet?

The drawers in the corner are huge (30" front to back & 15 5/8" wide ) and are mounted in a standard 36 X 36 frameless cabinet. I haven't bothered to figure it out but I would be wiling to bet that the drawers offer more storage space than a lazy susan, not to mention the convenience of having drawers.
I decided to go with all drawers on the bottom after a friend redid his own kitchen with doors and pullouts on the bottom. He told me that the inside of the doors and the corners of the pullouts were being damaged because everyone was closing the doors without making sure the pullouts were all the way in. He intends to remove the doors and make drawer fronts for all the pullouts now.
