I have more questions than answers, but am very interested in how this pans out. For me, I have only built two projects thus far that have panels, a blanket chest and raised panel doors on a sideboard.

Just as @jtrill has done, I have used 1/8in at the most on my panels. No problems thus far. I understand that that is no guarantee for the future.

My questions would be with regards to the environmental conditions where these joints have/are failing:
  • Are they in a constantly changing temp?
  • Are they in constantly changing humidity + – ?
  • Did it occur in a particular Season?
  • What type of heating/AC was utilized in those home environments?

I do NOT expect you to answer all questions in detail, but just wanted to suggest another direction to look into and/or research.
