I am planning a cabinet with two frame & panel doors that would ideally be approximately 6’0″ tall by only about 1’0″ wide. The Frame would utilize 4/4 cherry stock (3/4″ thick) and 1/4″ cherry ply as the panel.
I would like the frame to be this long and narrow WITHOUT intermediate cross bars. Initially I wondered weather the frame this length might flex or otherwise contort and more recently I wondered if I could simply glue the plywood panel to the frame?
I’ve always understood that panels should “float” in frames like drawer bottoms but plywood is pretty stable…..
Is my thinking right or wrong?
Any experienced help would be gratefully appreciated!
