I think that the 2 most important things are execution and the picking of the wood for each piece. I don’t have the luxury of having an endless lumber stock but I do try to pick the individual pieces as much as possible. I work with oak a lot and if you get a pair of doors with a stile on one door of flat sawn and an almost q sawn piece on the other someone may not be able to tell you exactly what is wrong but their eyes will tell them something isn’t quite right.
