I am designing a Hope Chest (with help from ToolDad) and wanted to know if I need to add breadboarding, cleats or something else to strengthen a 3/4” Cedar lid. It will be about 42” x 21” on top.
The lid is going to be jointed and glued – I wasn’t planning any biscuits or any other fancy joining methods – but please let me know if I should use a jointing router bit, biscuit joints or tongue-and groove joints to make it more stable – I would like this chest to last a LONG time.
Thanks in advance!
