Bead board cabinet door assembly
I'm trying to build someone a few cabinets to save them some money and want them to match the existing ones. They have bead board doors but it's a solid door (mdf perhaps), the bead board isn't an inserted panel.
I got a sheet of bead board plywood at lowes to make panels and originally planed to just rabbit out about a 1/2" around the inner part of the door stiles/rails. I was hoping the plywood would be flush with the stiles/rails on the back side. My worry is, would that be strong enough to keep the plywood from cupping and breaking free? Should I glue it to the stiles/rails? Or is this just not a good plan in general?
I also thought it might just be better to route out a grove in the middle of stiles/rails and let the plywood slide in like a normal panel insert. Would that be a better approach?
I have 2" stiles and rails and the bead board I think is 0.35". What's the best way to make these doors?
