Hello wooworkers ,
Im having a design problem and was hoping that I could get some advice on what to do here .Im trying to build a buffet for a lady .
My problem is
1) the weight .
2) upper and lower dividers joinery into the corners .
X 21” wide x 56” long
The top divider is 3/4” thick x 4 1/2” wide x 51” long
The lower divider is the same but its 5 1/2” below the top one . I have two partitions spaced 10 1/2” apart from the center. In the center there is a flush mounted drawer and on each side there is a 19 1/2” drawer.
So up top there are three drawers total.
The corner post are made up from 2 1/2” square riftsawn cherry.
Distance. I really dont want to put a dummy apron there because the buffet is solid cherry and I need to be mindful of the weight.? So what can I do .
On the dividers I suppose I could use double tenons , so if I was to tenons the doublers they would be all over the double tenons of the divider . I hope this all makes sense.
Im really worried about the weight on this thing since Im not using plywood anywhere.
Any suggestions would be very appreciative. Thanks Chris
My problem is two fold . One is my sides are flush with the outside post. With 3/4” thick rails .so I have 13/4” space from the rail to the inside of the post . I need to Attach my doublers to something And I have 1 3/4”
-- Ive cut this board three times and its still too short?
