I intend to make a breadboard end on a panel to adorn the top of a small wardrobe I am building.
I recently laid a solid oak floor in a back bedroom and to utilise some of the remaining boards I thought of using them to create the decorative top panel of the cabinet which will sit on top of the structural panel of 18mm hardwood ply. The oak boards are approx 100mm x 18mm with T&G edging and ends and of varying lenghts. The finished panel will measure approx 1000mm X 450mm.
How would you create the panel taking into account seasonal movement?
i was thinking of gluing the boards together, left unplaned to match the existing floor. I was thinking of routing a longer tenon onto the ends of the panel and a deeper groove on the breadboard end. However, what would be the best method for attaching the breadboard end….glue in the centre only ??
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
