@HarveyWildes thank you!

@Rob Z thank you.

@therogd thanks for the feedback! Point well taken. By the time I saw the advice on this forum the build was pretty close to finished.

But I will absolutely take this into account in the future.

Matt,

Love to see your projects, I read all your posts. I remember when you first came onto the site. Your skill level is progressing very rapidly.

Like you, I am new to woodworking and make many mistakes from lack of knowledge( I made five or six cutting boards out of a solid piece of walnut and gave them to my family, because I assumed the reason they are glued is because it was cheaper to use scraps instead of a solid piece. No they haven't cupped or warped yet, and it is over a year). But, I enjoy jumping in there and making things. I just don't post them because they are no where near as nice as your stuff.

Keep showing your work, I love to see it.

Regards

Well a solid cutting board that is free to move seasonally is probably not going to cup in year - different issue. Enough said.

As your project is glued already you could spline you miters (long grain) - that may help them.

Matt,

Beautiful piece, fantastic execution.

Now I'm going to upset half this forum-------do not worry about movement or your miters. In your environment they're not going anywhere.

Some my remember the TV stand I built out of walnut and hickory. I built it for the northwest Indiana climate I was used to, issue is it's in Colorado Springs.

The 1/32" gap I left between the panel and picture frame has never varied. I see it every day and dust it a couple of times a week. The shelf was built tight and the miters are as tight as the day I built them.

Knowing the environment is as important as selecting the proper species and cut of the wood.

Matt, again, great job. 

Tom
