Keeping Plank Doors Flat

Five solutions, from standard to stylish

by

Christian Becksvoort collaborated with a student and Andrew Garton, of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, to arrive at solutions for keeping plank doors from cupping or warping. This article covers battens, dovetailed keys, breadboard ends, hidden breadboard ends, and invisible cleats, and shows how to make each, with photo sequences detailing every step. Becksvoort also advises which doors these techniques work best on.
