THANK YOU to all that commented.

Although still undecided on breadboards, battens or dovetails, i will stick with traditional joinery as i am to chicken to try those new chemical treatments i have been reading about. They were developed by conservationists who came up with a way to keep ancient wooden ships that were sunk, and treated chemically  after they were raised to keep the wood from disintegrating when exposed to air. It sounds very promising in future though as a means to prevent splitting/cupping in single board construction.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
