I am building a few mission style radiator covers for a friend. I’ve done several mission beds before with M&T, slats… what I cant figure out for this project is how to attach the sides to the legs.
The legs will be 2.5” square, the sides will be solid white oak flat panels. I can make them frame and panel, but the photo he showed me doesn’t look like they did that. What is the best way to attach the sides? Considering this is a radiator I offered to make the sides just like the front but he wants whats in the picture.
If I make a frame, I’m not sure how the stiles will connect to the legs, the rails will be M&T but what will i do with the stiles? Would I just run a dado from top mortise to bottom mortise and then put a tongue on the outside of my stiles? Not sure what to do here.
Any help would be appreciated.
