How to create a protruding rail?

I building a dresser inspired by the photo below and am trying to figure out what would be the best way to create a protruding rail (1 x material wrapping the front and sides) as shown in the photo. I have considered inserting (glue joint) the rail into a dado, but am concerned about the joint failing. The dresser will be made of Quarter sawn white oak. Any suggestions?

Allow spacing for the rail on the surface of the cabinet. Cut the pieces with mitered corners in the front. Just glue and clamp to the cabinet.

yes. My concern is that the protruding rail will be glued to the existing rail with grain going one direction and the stiles with grain going another. width this pose a problem down the road. I understand that qtr sawn is fairly stable but not sure if this is ok or not.

I would just make it as an add on moulding.

Cabinetman's advice is the way I would go.

Yup to above added mould profile.......UNLESS,there was a design reason that precluded that method.Like if you were replicating an existing pce or some such?BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

It is very difficult to get people to understand that glue is very strong.

George
especially when you use the right glue and practice correct prep for the application.

Would y'all biscuit? I think I would, but I can see that it's probably close to a draw at this application.

Not me. I wouldn't use lag bolts either.

Let me toss something out for discussion.

Make the dresser in two parts. Connect the top to the bottom with screws???

Use the right tool for the job.
