    How bad is it? How big are the doors? Are the edges that join to the rails perfectly square?

    Another thing to check is that the crowns match. Don't use a stile with a lot of crown and a stile with very little crown on the same door.

    I feel like I'm missing something here. A photo might help.

    If the warp you are experiencing is about an 1/8" then you could easily adjust that out with the hinges adjustments. More than 1/8" is a bit more challenging to make look right.

    When I sight down a board, or in this case a cabinet door stile, from one end to the other and if I notice a bend that is what I call crown. It should not be the edge but the face because I would normally take the crown off the edges. So I make a pencil mark on the back so now if I set the piece down on a flat surface with the pencil mark facing down then the piece should touch on each end but not in the middle. When you make a cabinet door and crown all the parts up then when you go to install the door it will touch on each corner and not rock in the middle.
