Here is some background to help paint the picture. The bed is a queen size bed and it basically stands up straight against the wall when closed. The cabinet I was planning to try to build would have bi-fold doors with panel/frame construction. since the bed stands aboout 7 feet tall when closed, I was wondering if the stiles (correct term I hope) could be in two parts, seperated by a rail. This way I wouldn’t need one piece of long straight stock 7 feet long to build this?
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this done before. Normally I see the stiles run the full length of whatever project it is. I’m thinking it might have to do with maintaining stuctural integrity of the doors. If anyones got any advice, I’d really appreciate it.
It looks like Bob and Karson each have some examples of what I wish I could do, but don’t have the materials for here:
