Mortise and Tenon Questions
I’m a neophyte and my first major project, everything is relative, is to make two sets of raised panel bifold doors for our bedroom closets.
The doors will be made out of poplar. Each of the bifold panels will be about 80” by 17.25”. The stiles and rails will be 1” thick and the raised panels will be 3/4” thick.
As I’m about to start putting the tools to the wood I’m becoming concerned with my intension of just using cope and stick joinery.
Question 1: Will cope and stick joinery be strong enough to do the job?
Question 2: Or, should I combine it with mortise and tenon joinery?
Question 3: if the answer to #2 is yes, how do a do it.
I would love to talk to anyone who can help me. Oh! I’m located in New Castle, DE and would be happy to call you on my dime. Thank You!
