I'm almost done designing this TV stand, but i'm not sure how to layout the doors. I have it designed two different ways. I'm pretty sure if I put the door right up against the leg it will not be able to open all the way so I moved it over in the other picture. This is where i'm not sure what to do. I was going to put piece of wood to fill that gap, but i'm not sure what type of joinery to use to put it in. Any recommendations?
Second, I have these raised panels in the sides. I'm cutting the chamfers on the table saw. I'm not sure if I have this layed out correctly or if there is an easier way to do it. I saw pictures where the panel doesn't have a rabbit around it like mine. I don't see how it would be easier to avoid doing the rabbit and just cutting the chamfer. Also, the groove it goes into is 1/4" deep. I plan on using these (http://www.rockler.com/space-balls-r...l-door-spacers
) in the grooves which are about 1/8", so that only leaves an 1/8" of wood that goes into the groove. Is that to little? The space balls will allow the panel to expand and contract as well as eliminate panel rattle.
