I disagree with Sorethumbs as the OP indicated he intends to use plywood panels. I have personally glued many veneered MDF panels into hardwood cope & stick frames, and it hasn’t impacted joint stability at all. Solid wood panels are entirely another story, and here Sorethumbs is correct.

Floridagramps – I have had better luck with veneered MDF for door panels – they seem to stay flatter, and are also not undersized like most veneer-core panels (better fit for standard cope and stick router sets). This isn’t as much of an issue with your construction method.
