If you apply a stain, you should stain panels prior to assembly of your door. If you stain after assembly and the panel contracts with temperature or humidity you could have a non-stained area, perpendicular to the grain, exposed on sides of your panels.

Don’t ask me how I know that. ;-)

Good luck.
