Thank you one and all for the very helpful comments.

I have cope and stick cutters for my combi machine shaper and I used them for the existing cabinet doors, but since no one had anything negative to say about the mitered half-lap joints, I think I will go with that. I used some router templates to do the Mitered half-laps on my shop cabinet doors and they worked real well. It’s good to know that the half-laps are actually stronger than the cope and stick joints. Not so surprising though, considering the huge glue surface.
