So next I took this really small trim (I have no idea what this is for, but it’s incredibly cheap, and rounded on both edges), and cut pieces to cover the edges of the door. I am thrilled that you posted this AND with pictures, I am dying to do this to my kitchen, cabinets and have not been able to visualize it.
Sooooo excited to see someone tackle making door fronts as I have 33 kitchen cupboards that are in desperate need of a makeover but the pocketbook doesn’t have enough in it to get ready-made. The solid wood panel in this cabinet door is not glued to the frame to allow for wood movement.
I wish you had done this a year ago when my hubby was making doors for the front of our tub- we just ended up with plain boards rounded on the edges. After acquiring a degree in Construction Management, he went to work in the commercial construction industry designing high-rise architectural woodwork.
Because of it's open cell structure, wood will swell and shrink based on the relative humidity.
Fabricating with wood requires a mentality of coexistence (like understanding differences in people) as it pertains to movement.
Check out the modified cabinet door slideshow to see one approach in solving the wood movement puzzle.
