Nice work. On your web site you mention making “a minor alteration to prevent warping.” Just wondering—what did you do?

Because the the doors were made from finger joined laminated wood, we knew there would be issues with warping and bowing. While you do get it with a solid piece, it can effect lamination more. We had the wood sitting in the shop for a couple of days and watched the warping (and bowing) happen…

We added extra strips down both sides of the doors as per the plans found here. These strips will stop the warping of the top and bottom panels, while the top and bottom panels themselves are stopping the bowing of the two main side panels…

Hope that makes sense… ???
