I should have been more specific, If I mill it down to 1/2 inch it will dry much faster. Now ive done that before, stacked and stickered and it worked out with only minimal cupping. But its a pain in ass to use even when you can push the cup out. So I’m thinking if I assemble the boxes then dry them the dovetail joints should be plenty strong enough to hold them. This is a time and resource thing. I have enough dry qs oak to do the entire project except the insides of the drawers. I have some dry poplar but that’s not going to look right imo.
CharlesNeil, I do believe your wrong by implying its totally out the realm of posibilty, I’m no Roy Underhill but I’m not a total dumbass either. Wood movement and shrinkage is a real concern but I believe it to be over rated in some applications.
Ill keep yall posted.
