i leave 1/8” both sides when i use the ‘spaceballs’

the other way we did it for years was to make the panel exact
to the slot dimensions
and them trim of bot sides 1/8”
1/16” top and bottom
(so the profile is centered still)
and when the rails and stiles are glued up
move the panel to center
and pin nail it top and bottom
with short pins
so it can move one half the panel expansion
to each side yet still be centered
a dab of glue in the center of the top and bottom rails grove will do the same
just need to move the panel fast
before the glue sets
