A customer wants me to build them this – or something like this:
However, I’m having a hard time coming up with a method of making those thin wooden strips in the doors. There’s no glass in those doors, so these would have to be strong. But how? In my mind the horizontals and verticals could be achieved through a time consuming collection of half-laps, but that gets thrown off with the X shaped parts that could only then by butt glued into each corner. I cannot see this being strong enough if made of any softwood. With no glass any stray foot would bust right through this.
I’m 99% certain that I’ll have to apologize and explain that I can’t do this in any way that would be affordable. However, I thought it would be worth checking here to see if anyone has come across/solved/passed on this opportunity before.
Lastly – do these things have a name?
