Looks cool. You use mortise and tenons?

FishMan – I used loose tenons on the door stiles/rails, but used splines on the back and sides. The splines were made of the same mdf plywood as the panels. That way I could cut the dado straight through on the stiles and rails. You can see the splines if you zoom in on this photo. Splines are about 1”x2”. Found this trick on an old timer’s you tube video, but I can’t find the link now
