Hi, I’m relatively new and I’m wanting to build a large (6’ x 2’ x 2’6”) box as shown below out of solid wood panels. Now I’ve heard when designing a piece of furniture you need to consider many things like expansion contraction and strength of joints. What would be the best joint to use on something like this with large round over corners? Construction will be 4 quarter oak or walnut. Back panel will most likely fit inside the 4 main panels. So it will be like a hollow box kind of like an amplifier cab.

Thanks
