Thanks for the input so far guys. The doors would each be roughly 21” w x 60” h. They would be made of 7/8” stock approximately. Obviously that could change with the final design and whether I build a panel door or solid door with some breadboard end variation.

James, the design doesn’t allow for two doors. My concern was the mortise and tenon wanting to pull apart or rack. Why would you go with loose tenon joinery over traditional mortise and tenon? I’m curious.

DS251 I like the look of your doors. Nice job! That’s what I’m going for to some degree but on a larger scale. I fear with the size of my doors a cope and stick wouldn’t provide enough strength.

The design currently calls for 3” rails and 3” stiles.
