I have two questions. Is there a way to predict how much movement occur? I built a large cupboard last summer. It was based on an early 19th Century piece that we saw in a museum. The door was flush mounted with the hinges on the outside. (See my projects for a picture).
Second question: I have a wall finished in solid wood (pine). I made the mistake of attaching three together to get into one area. This was a tight fit in summer but each winter a gap opens up in just one spot. The pine is painted so matching is not a problem. Can any of you think of something that I can slip into this opening to make it less noticable in winter but not cause compression problems in the summer?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
