I'm new to the forums and I'm after a big of advice for a set of open plan wardrobes I'm designing. They're in a mid-century style and have some design features similar to West Elm's mid-century range of furniture.
I would like to use a 22mm plywood to create this design, including the frame.
The large verticals of the frame would be cut to approx. 2350 length and 50mm wide finished with a radius edge of 4-5mm. As you can see from the images, there will be three horizontal supports along the length, but for design purposes, a distance of 1500mm will be unsupported where the clothes hang.
Will plywood be strong enough to make the frame, and will it resist bending/swaying? The angle of the front frame leg is 4 degrees.
I'm happy to build a French-cleat into the design to secure the top of the wardrobe to the wall behind and limit the amount of load onto the frame. At worst, a four section of horizontals could be built into the design for stiffness.
If plywood would do the job, would there be any particular grade you might recommend?
Thanks in advance
