@SOJANSSON is there a photo of the cabinet? I’m trying to picture the bevels that you are describing.
New lesson for me: Figured wood perhaps can be weak. I made a frame from tiger maple using half lapped dovetails at the corners. The elements are about 1 foot long (30 cm) and 1″x 1 1/4″ (2.5 x 3 cm) in section. Two of the sockets cracked. I don’t think I’ve ever cracked a dovetail before. One of them was a straight out break, removing a piece from the side of the side of the work, which allowed me to inspect the grain, which was running diagonally across the work. The figure in tiger maple comes from crazy grain, which I knew, but I didn’t appreciate that, as a result, you can end up with short grain in our joinery where you would normally have long grain, and I think that is what happened here. So, figured wood can be attractive, but it can also be weak, it seems.
