Topic tags/keywords: old-door made kitchen cabinets

I have several old cypress doors—both the ones with the panels running up and down and the ones with the slender panel/board running thru the middle vertically.

Has anyone used these to make kitchen cabinet doors?

I haven’t but it certainly can be done. You cut up the old doors and
make new, smaller ones from the wood. Pretty straightforward if you
have the equipment and know-how to make doors.

I was thinking of cutting the doors with the long vertical panels in two/vertically right down the middle and using them for 7 ft. tall cabinets—from floor up. And using the four and five panel—horizonal panels that is—turning the doors on their side and cutting to use for smaller doors for other cabinets—being 36” wide I was thinking they would be the perfect ht. for base cabinets. Any ideas?
