Joint for different thicknesses along the grain - 10 replies

What joint would you use if you are joining two boards of the same species of different thicknesses along the same grain. Im joining a 4/4 vertical stile to a 8/4 vertical leg. My first thought was a butt joint since there is no cross grain problems. Since they are different thicknesses wont they move at different rates?

Solid panel thickness for doors - 2 replies

I was wondering if there is a standard thickness to use for solid wood panels in cabinet doors. I have seen anywhere form 1/4”-5/8”. I am talking about shaker style, inset frame and panel doors. Does this depend on the width and height of the panel?
