Yes, you can apply the ratio to the rails and stiles and then to the panels. It always takes a lot of work and planning. I once saw an illustration of The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris with the ratios superimposed on the structure. The tower width to height, the distance between the towers to the height of the towers, the windows in the towers, the "first floor" to the towers, the stairs, the doors. It was truly mind boggling. Visually appealing takes time, but the challenge is really to have both visually appealing and functionality.
