Jeremy,
I have made this type panel n large and small dimension. If you left yourself 1/8" room, you will be fine. You need this 1/8" for the up and down as well as side to side. Or 1/16" space all the way around.
This will be fine unless you use a swamp cooler (water fan).
Get yourself a table saw.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Question:
Since you're splining your miters, how are you doing this?
It seems like you use mostly hand tools.
Normally we cut splines with a router, table saw or Biscuit cutter.
Did you cut your splines by hand?

Yes I'll cut them by hand. Mark two sides and depth with a marking gauge, cut along the lines with a dovetail saw, use the dovetail saw, coping saw, and a chisel to clean out the slot.

I practiced this technique on a picture frame. I'll make the spline thinner this time - I think this one looks a little clunky. I have a 1/4" chisel, so I'll probably go for about th size. Otherwise I won't be able to clean up the bottom of the slot.

Hi Jeremy

This particular piece was completed 6 years ago. It is built in Tasmanian Oak (which is a eucalyptus, not an oak), which is similar to White Oak to work with. It is going strong.



Regards from Perth

Derek
