Building a custom piece of furniture advice needed
Hello I'm building a custom piece of furniture for my tiny kitchen it will serve three purposes: to hide the rubbish (trash) bin, house cooking vegetables in wicker baskets and for a microwave to sit on top. Its a piece of furniture to solve problems in a limited space.
What I need help with is the joints. I was going to use simple dowel joints to join the oak flooring panels together to form the piece of furniture but I'm concerned that this will not be strong enough. (I don't really want to construct a frame to build it around due to limited space and it will complicate the design too much)
