    Corner cabinets for the shop

    Any ideas or links for heavy duty storage at inside corners. Similar to the link but 3,000$ less is more my price range. All the lazy susan corner shelves for kitchens I have seen seem pretty light weight and made of plastic.

    I put in the plainest white Ikea kitchen cabinets in my workshop and I'm really happy with them. They have a corner cabinet box and you could build your own lazy susan mechanism into the box if theirs isn't strong enough. You could fill your whole shop for less than the cost of just the corner cabinet in your link.

    revolving seems to be the search term. Ikea has no mention of allowed weight. I love this one on ebay but not the price. Doing all those angles would be time consuming. Not sure how the base cabinet frame is made either.

    Sounds like a great project that could be built for a small fraction of the price (although with the price of wood these days ).

    I'd love to see what hardware is used for the pivoting. Is it just a linear rod, and some spacer bearings. Like these:

    I think I would use a piece of water pipe flange mounted to the base. A lazy susan bearing on the bottom and something similar mounted to the top of the pipe. This way the pipe is not really loaded. I liked the old spinning nail bins at the hardware stores.
