Just build it right. Long tenons and deep mortises will
help it stay flatter but it’s probably overkill since the door
will be indoors. Use a moisture meter and make sure
all the wood you use is around 7% and let it move as
you work with it. Walnut is also one of the more stable
fine woods. Avoid using stock with distorted tissue.
