Default Panels

I am going to be making some raised panel cabinet doors out of red oak. Some of my panels are going to be 16" wide. Locally I can get oak up to 12" wide. But, a 12" board, glued to a 4" board, wouldn't look so great. What combination of boards do you guys recommend for strength, and resistance to warpage.

what about getting a thicker peice of 8"wide stock and splitting it down the middle then glueing it together to make one 16" peice.

Or put another Rail in the center of the door.

I'm looking at the same issue with my next project; redoing the kitchen cabinets, if I resurface the cabinets, and make new doors I have some that are wide. My planer only handles 12" so I not sure what I'm going to do yet.

Let us know what you do.

Hi Rusty

Just use 4" wide stock for all the parts for the panel,, 12" wide will cup in time or crack and split..once a tree it always wants to be one

When you glue them up if the end grain is cuped, have the cupping go opposit in each board one up, one down. At leasth that is what someone told me,

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

JD,
Your idea of a split panel is a great one.
