Topic tags/keywords: beech mdf veneer minimalist thin jointer shaker

I am thinking about making a very minimalist type of furniture using 12 mm beech veneered MDF boards for panels and some 26 by 26 mm wood beech for the frames the idea is to use the minimum to make a good looking piece of furniture, i made a simple illustration to show the shaker mortise and tenon

I’m a bit skeptical about the weight, will the frame handle the weight of the mdf boards?
if not I would like to know any type of the minimalist technique to use my 12 mm veneered mdf and specially the hide the ugly edges

thanks a lot
Mehdi

My inner voice says no it’s not a good design.

ANSYS FEA is some of the best you can get, but it’s pricey.

It looks like you are trying to build a post and panel cabinet or chest but have the posts running the wrong direction. I googled hoping to find a good picture but basically instead of frames with panels, you’d have 4 posts with grooves for the panels. Take your drawing and rotate 1/4 turn.

What you show will fold but it’s hard to interpret a simple drawing and your description is vague.
