I think you are asking about frame and panel construction. Basically, it’s how cabinet door frames can have profiled inside edges but crisp 90 degree inside corners. The edges are profiled (or in this case, rounded) before the frame is assembled.

The joints in a traditional “cope and stick” or “mortise & tenon” frame can be a bit complex to execute if you’re just getting started, so an easier way to make a frame and panel is as a mitered frame. The joinery isn’t complex; the only hard part is making sure you can cut accurate 45 degree miters. The inside edges of the frame sides can be profiled with a router, then the frame and panel is assembled.

Hope that helps…sorry if I completely misunderstood your question…
