Light duty box bottom question
I am making a box roughly 22 long by 12 deep and 12 tall. Instead of a dado groove and floating bottom I was thinking of rabbiting the sides so the bottom could sit flush inside or rabbiting the bottom and having the sides sit on top exposing the edge of the bottom a little.
Both ways it would need to be glued in and I wondered if this was going to break over time with expansion and contraction. The wood is high quality Baltic birch not big box stuff. It will However see significant humidity and temp swings.
I really don't want to use pocket screws or nails, before I did that I would just move forward with a floating bottom groove.
Any feedback appreciated.
