    My door warped

    I finally had a little time to get back to my cabinet. Well, one of the doors has moved on me. The right one in the picture. If I push down on the lower right corner the upper left will come up around an 1/8 inch. Any ideas how to fix it, or should I just punt and remake the door?

    Are they going to be inset or overlay doors? If overlay you might be able to fix the problem with the hinges. I think your problem might be the panel itself. Did you leave enough expansion in the rails and stiles? Plus how tight fitting are they in the grooves?

    John, when you first posted a picture of those panels I thought what a beautiful cabinet they would make. My methodology for this kind of thing is to set a project aside until I overcome my disappointment, and then try again. Takes a long time, but I recommend it
