Little Help with Floating Shadow Box
I'd like to make a simple Shadow Box (actually a rectangle) to fit under a wall mount tv and hold the TV compents. I am looking for just plain straight line look. I plan to connect to the wall using a french cleat. Dimensions are 48" long 16" deep and 8" tall. Since I am cheap I was planning on using 3/4 oak plywood and veneering the front edges. My question is the corner joints. I am doubting a 16" miter is going to be strong enough and if I do a butt joint the veneer on the end of one of the boards is going to run the wrong way. I am just looking for some ideas to get around this.
