Many years ago, I built a china closet with a very similar design. It was a project from Woodsmith. Let me see if I can fin the issue and look at how the carcass was constructed. I seem to remember some 22.5° angles.

 

It was in Woodsmith No. 61.

 

Check that corner make sure it is ''square'' Yeaw I'm late gittin heaw.

One nice thing about this design was that the back was flat and didn't go back into the corner. Not as much space in the closet but it pretty much avoided the non-square corner problem

I guess it has to do with the combination of the bevel and taper, I found a link to a jig which makes sense to me.

Just have to work out if it tapers an inch at the top and there are 8 staves, do I taper each just a 1/16 to add up to 1/8 per joint?
