As long as the back is securely installed
I don t think it is likely to rack with KD
connectors, especially with that divider
and (I m guessing) fixed shelf. Of course
the joints on thing like IKEA pieces fail
because the material is low grade, tears
out, and the cases just have the backs
affixed with a few screws.

I could, as stated, laminate the interior side, assemble with KD or rastex from the outside, the laminate the outsides.

This is where i get stuck.. there’s 50 ways to peel this onion …

Further, I’d like to make this repeatable. I live in an area where I think I could sell a few of these with a few options of color choices. And laminate makes so much sense for a dining room serving table.

I’ve been toying with the idea of changing the design to have a full length pull out tray just under to the top, and above the drawers for extra serving space. I know in our own dining area, we’d use it a lot to set out food for serving.

So the idea of tea jugs sweating on it, hot plates, hot pans.. laminate makes so much sense.
