Not that this helps a lot, but I am having a miserable time building a table out of Ash. No matter what I do, this wood does not want to stay square.

With pieces THAT big, I would think warping is unavoidable. Since it’s painted, I probably would have saved the ash and used MDF or baltic birch plywood. I’ve never made a door (or anything that large) though. I can say that I have never seen an 83” piece of solid lumber remain perfectly straight/flat.
