Happy New Year everyone,
I am building a cherry desk with an Asian feel using three-way miters for the top of the frames. The desk will be a corner desk, each side being 6 feet long by 2 feet deep. Each side will have a base of four drawers at its end.
I am concerned with the strength of the three-way miters for a desk this size. The frame will be made of 1 1/2 ” square cherry that will hold side and back panels.
Richard Gotz, in a Finewoodworking Magazine exjplained his approuch to these miters but specified that they where for light duty furniture.
This will be a pretty heavy desk so I am looking for a way to make these miters strong enough.
Any sugestions would be helpful.
