My dad had a customer that found a picture in a magazine that they fell in LOVE with. After searching high and low and talking to many custom woodworkers, nobody would even attempt to complete this project. Well, me being either super brave or super insane, took on a project that not even seasoned woodworkers would attempt. These panels were 25” tall and 14” wide. The edges needed to be kept 1/4” thick and they wanted the center to be as tall as possible with a small flat spot at the peak to be 15/16” thick. After a bunch of trial and error, lots of test material, I was able to make all 26 doors needed for the project. Of the 60 BF of select alder that I started with, I ended up with 6 huge garbage bags of chips and about 100 triangles. But, best of all was a satisfied customer and many confused people wondering how that door was ever made. I did make one extra to have at his showroom and many people still walk up and touch it to see if it’s solid wood….and it sure is!

I hear ya brother. They look good. I did some similar.
Mine were a little easier because they were painted, except they had to go into an arch at the top.
I’ll share some pics when they get the photo’s fixed
