I’m with Dave H. Proportion is critical on Shaker furniture. Do a full sized sketch to see how it looks. Most often a dimension change of just a couple of inches can make a big difference.

You can draw it up on paper with my measurements on a scale 1/4 to a foot and it should come out pretty close
