Question about cross grain gluing.
I am very new to woodworking, but have been doing a lot of research on the subject recently, that said I am hoping someone with experience can give me some input here.
I have attached a screen grab from SketchUp of the bottom portion of a chest I am building to go under my bed. I have changed the plans a bit since that model, but it should get the point across. My question is concerning wood movement with the bottom boards being glued and screwed to the edge grain of the side boards. Keep in mind, the bottom is not an edge glued panel, they are individual cedar 1x4"s, which I have read are relatively stable. In addition to this, I made two trim pieces (breadboard ends?) to cover the end grain, that I have tongue and grooved, and planned to glue.
So considering this isn't an edge glued panel, should I be worried about wood movement?
