Any tips on how to build these cabinet doors?

All,

I am a novice looking to build my own kitchen cabinets. I have the tools but lack the know-how.

I like these doors, but given the narrow perimeter and thick center panel, it seems to me that standard panel door construction may not work.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Justin

Those almost look to me like they're fake frame-and-panel, with just a groove routed into a flat piece to make it look like frame and panel. I know I've seen those around on occasion.

Looks like they could be just a slab door, with a routed groove, and an add on edge to the face.

Definitely look like slab doors.
Cheapest way probably 5/8" MDF with 3/4" X 3/4" paint grade (Poplar?) edge-banding.
I'd rabbet a shallow slot in edge-banding thickness of MDF for easy glue-up, keep backs flush for euro-hinges.
Pulls look like tapered 3/4" to 1&1/2" ? clear coated red oak just butted to the painted Poplar.
