I want to create a box. I am using a lap joint for the top and bottom frame.
For the vertical sides I need help. The pictures show the two ideas I had.
But there must be a better way to attach the vertical pieces instead of being inside or outside like I have drawn them. Ideally I would like the corner of the vertical support to flush with the corner of the horizontal frame corner. I could toe-nail thr vertical into the frames, but that seems very weak to me
1) strong - I don't want the structure to "fold" if it is leaned on 2) flush to the long and short sides because I want MDF on one side and doors on the long face to create storage. 2a) for doors I will need more vertical members to create a door opening. Basically I'm creating a built-in entertainment centre as the end result
