Making some doors for a friend and I’m a little concerned with the size. The doors are 67” tall and 15” wide. They are typical rail and stile…a rail at the top and bottom and stiles on either side. My friend does not want any additional rails in the middle of the door and I’m worried that it will “bow” in middle. I have never glued in a panel before and always assumed they should “float” due to expansion.
I’ve done a dry fit and have to clamp in middle to achieve desired look, fit, and square.
These doors will be painted to match existing doors in the room. Are there any tricks other than adding a middle rail or bracing on the back to “pull” the sides into square?
