Shown is a portion of the bottom half of the corner cupboard with the parts dry fit. The question involves the carved flanking panels on each side of the drawer.
I can make a tight glue joint of the carved panel with the strips above and below it as well as the frame end. Or, I can make a slight chamfer around this panel to frame it with a subtle shadow. I am leaning towards the latter. Opinions anyone?
