I mostly enjoy lurking with an occasional post every now and then, but today I have a question. I’m planning on building a nightstand sort of similar to the one pictured. Is it a bad idea to glue up 2 or 3 pieces of 1/2” cherry to make a 16” wide panel for the side/top/bottom of the box?? Is gluing up 1/2” that wide just asking for warping trouble? I could use dovetails to help avoid warping or do you think mitres will be fine?
I’ll be resawing the 1/2” pieces from some 9/4 cherry I have. I could also make the sides a bit thicker, but I want to get the most milage out of my wood.
