I need to build doors for my cabinet, 5 inches deep for added storage. Is there a proper way to build them? I was thinking of a mitered box with a panel. Is there a typical joint used for the corners other than meters?

Dovetails are the typical joint used from what I’ve seen.

Kevin, give it a shot. Your work so far indicates you have the skills to pull it off. Even if it takes a few try’s, nuttin’ to loose and skills to gain.

No project like this one to give it a shot. It’s for the shop so it doesn’t need to be perfect.

Kevin, have you started practicing dovetails by hand yet? You’ve got a band saw, right? I know you can cut these bad boys, you’re a much more talented woodworker than myself. I have practiced random dovetails on scrap to discover that yes I can indeed cut them and make them fit, they just aren’t pretty yet.
