Timber strengthening

Post by MrAtkinson » Fri Jan 15, 2016 9:58 am

Hi guys,

I am creating a project where i will be routing out a solid piece of oak, walnut and ash. I will be using 20mm thick pieced and have a large area (450mm x 470mm) routed down to 7mm thickness to allow a drawer to be fitted. Obviously this is quiet thin so i was wondering if there is anyway of strengthening it withit getting much bigger than 7mm?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

frame and panel might do, but without more details on your design, can't say for sure
