TBH the corner "fillets" must be much larger to have any
bracing effect, the stiffness of a square section is preferrred
to a tri-angular cross section.
Also a stiff strong wood must be used, e.g. beech not pine.

With thick panels its difficult to corner brace effectively which
is why they are commonly omitted in most modern designs.

An exception is an inset back panel, the T shape corner section
is much stiffer than the L shape corner section, its not used
elsewhere for aesthetic and/or acoustic reasons.

Figure of 8 type cabinet bracing locks corners together very
effectively, combining this with an inset back panel and double
thickness front baffle is a common approach.
