from above)Many solid wood doors are made without bread board ends ,unless that’s the look you like. Solid wood cabinet doors are usually made of mostly strips of wood no larger the 2 wide so that minimizes cupping and twisting problems. With a door that size using M&T joinery I would peg the joints. Panel doors help eliminate wood movement problems buy having the floating panel . Either type door will work. Solid wood doors take more material (unless your using solid wood panels)and weigh more.
