When I built my kitchen I went with the angled corners too. I like the drawers idea and I haven't gotten around to the lazy susans that were going in them so I'll have to look at that idea. The angled corners make for very deep corners and my wife is short and would never be able to reach all the way into the corner so I framed across the back and gave a flat that is about a foot across. I didn't think that all that area would look that good so I built raised platforms across the back which makes a good place to park cook books, canister sets, or something like a toaster oven which is what is in the other corner.
I do a lot of the cooking and I wanted a long and narrow kitchen so that I could turn around, take a step or two and be at the other side. My 36" cook top is centered in the end. The 2 corner drawers are good places for cooking tools and there was just enough extra room for the spice drawers on either side which I made with 4 x 4 blocks of red cedar and a Forstner bit about the same diameter as the spice bottles. I've been very pleased with the results. Besides looking different from the average kitchen it is very functional.
For some reason the forum won't let me upload pictures. I'll try again later.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
