    How did you do the corners?

      I am not sure what you are asking. Can you clarify which corners you are talking about. If you are talking about the curve of the wood, the above pictures show the template pattern that I used.

      I think I understand what you are asking. I would have the same issue. After looking at the pictures again, I don't think there are any corners. Both the right side and the left side are against a wall.

    How do you attach the 1 x 4 "leg" board to the bottom of the cabinets? I don't see any nail holes on the front of them.
