Well, it looks good… you put it together very nicely as you do all of your projects…

BUT… (yep, you could smell a BUT coming… couldn’t you? LOL )

1. Particle board, IMHO, sucks, breaks easily, very heavy, etc.

2. Biscuits are great for aligning panel glue-ups.

3. Biscuits are NOT strong… your Case could be about to collapse if too much weight is placed in/on it.

4. Melamine is nothing more than Paper covered Particle board…
... what happens when you glue paper to paper? Is it a very strong and reliable glue joint?

Those are my thoughts about your project…

If I am wrong, I’d like to know about it…
I would like to hear from the consensus of the membership on the subject…

IMHO, a good plywood would have been a better choice… using Pocket glue & screw joinery… would have been much better.

I felt that just had to say this… for every ones good…

I hope it stays together for you.
