These are some french doors that I made for my daughter’s closet to replace crappy bifold doors.
You can see the video of how I built them Here

The doors look nice but you glued the individual boards to the frame which doesn’t allow for wood movement. My expectation is they will twist and buckle.

Thanks Rick for the advice. I see your point. I hope they’ll be ok, I used the same method on the head and foot board of my bed 3 years ago and haven’t had any issues, so fingers crossed. I realize that having the inside panel pieces inserted into a dado would have been better. I’m still learning, I appreciate the feedback!
