The shelves in the larger wardrobes are upto 1100 wide. 18mm MFC. Supported with 2 pins on the rear panel, and 1 pin in the back of the central face frame upright, so wouldn't expect any sag as maximum unsupported span is 550mm.phil.p":33jvp841 said:How wide are the large shelves and what are they made of? They look to me as if if swmbo got near them she would overload them and they would bow. (I've got one very similar to do )
We did talk about this, but the ceiling does wander from level quite a bit :lol: Also, i'm not a big fan of built in cabinetry without some form of cornice - it doesn't look "finished", if you understand what I mean.Random Orbital Bob":208ybbbn said:Lovely finish. Accurate joinery, great work there. Again not your call I appreciate but from a design perspective the client might have considered taking them direct through to ceiling and dispensing with the crown moulding as imho it's too close to the ceiling. Could have finished with a simple raised panel echoing the door design.
I find in practice those little voids are too small to store anything and just create a spider and dust haven.
I quite often make them thicker - just feel a little more solid with a 9mm panel and proper room for the tenon. Plus, these doors had a moulding planted on the panel, so it allowed it to be seated at the correct depth in relation to the rails/stiles.mailee":uly2zik0 said:I am curious as to why you use 25mm doors though?
