Hi guys/gals. I've never tried to build a real piece of furniture before and I'm now going to try to build an end table. Actually it will be a small cabinet that will set between my wifes and my recliner in our TV room. It will be a place to set the remotes and glasses of drink etc. It will have two small doors in the front that will open to allow "stuff" to be stored inside.
I'm building it out of "select" pine and will add some "wainscot" panels to it for looks. The wood looks very good and straight. I'm using 8" width boards. I need to create 20" wide panels, 26 inches long from this 8" stock. (It will end up looking more like a box with doors in front.) I have a joiner and will be sure to square up the edges of each board.
Do I need to use biscuits in the joints? Or can I just glue them up edge to edge of each board? I'll use titebond glue.
