Could I get some input on the design of a pine, 3-drawer file cabinet for the good wife.
Front: no face frame.
Back: 1/4” plywood, glued and nailed to the sides. (sides will be grooved to accept the plywood)
Sides: tongue and groove frame, holding 3 raised panels
To hold the thing together, I’m thinking of 4 horizontal frame-works that will be glued into dados in the rails of
the sides. These dados can be routed before gluing up the side frames. Also, the front and back frame-work
members will be sized smaller in length so that the other 2 members fit into the dados.
These frame-works will be strengthed with glue blocks. The glue blocks in the top frame-work will have elongated
holes for screws to attach the solid wood top.
The bottom of the cabinet will have a mitred wraparound, with a cove molding nailed on top.
Hope that is clear. Anyways, would this work? Or can you think of something better.
