Dave Noftz's thread about his nightstand reminded me of an issue that has stumped me for awhile now about frame and panel construction. Instead of hijacking his thread TOO much, I thought I'd start a new topic. So here goes..
Frame and panel construction - what do you do with shelves on the inside?? - especially an inside that will be public facing (not hidden by a door or a drawer, etc)
For an example, http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=7902 dave has his bottom shelf dropped a bit. My urge is to raise that shelf up a bit to be flush with all 4 rails.
An even tougher one for me has ben an entertainment center I'm working on. The side panels have middle rails and I can't decide where to align the shelves. Should I split the difference and put the shelf in the middle of the center rail or should it be flush?
I know it's all about personal preference, but I'm sure it's been tackled before and I'm interested to see what others have chosen to do about it.
In a related note, what if you have more shelves than dividing rails in the panel? Make the panel flush on the inside? Notch the shelf?
The flood of questions ... must .... come up ... for ...... air!
