I have a question which I really know the answer too but am really hoping I’m wrong. I am building some boxes and I want to use a solid piece of bubinga as the top of the box. I am using miter joints for the corner of my box then routing a rabbit in the top to hold the lid.
Obviously my problem is wood movement, I know the lid piece will move with the seasons,I am just wondering if it is really going to be enough to cause damage to the box. It is only about 8” wide.
I know the answer, I just like getting slapped.
I don’t want to start veneering MDF so any other non veneer solutions where I have a flat top surface without rails would be appreciated.
