Regards a panel in a furniture piece, or as cabinet door, or whatever.
If I have
a hardwood panel in a frame, I do not glue in ther panel, so that
to temperature or moisture will not crack the frame - right? Now
suppose I use
a (veneered) plywood panel instead of a hardwood panel - can I glue
in, or should I let it float? Thx, Gus
Let it float if you can, because the ply expands/shrinks at a
different rate from the hardwood frame.
I did a framed cabinet door by gluing the ply into the rabbet inside
the hardwood frame. The result is that the door warped badly in
certain months every year (due to humidity/temperature changes) but
was straight the rest of the year.
