Hmmm…. a frame made of something like 1/4” oak or maple or something hard. like an inch or inch and a half wide, held in place with small brass screws actually wouldn’t look too bad for what we’re doing. Heck, my wife said if the doors were made with pocket screws, she’s fine with that. “The INSIDE of my doors is not a decorating consideration.” :) I don’t want them to look like crap, but if I did something that looks like it was on purpose then that’d be ok.

In terms of strength. The door frame is doing all the work, right? I mean, even with a panel in the door, the panel is floating so it’s not adding to strength. Maybe helping to keep the door from warping. But if I build the stiles and rails wide enough, then this removable panel thing shouldn’t be an issue…. right?
