Basic Structure Of A Frameandpanel Door

In a typical frame-and-panel door, the stiles run through from top to bottom, and the grain in the panels is vertical. The rails are generally wider than the stiles, providing wider tenons and better resistance to warping of the panels. One rough rule suggests that if the bottom rail is one unit wide, the top rail should be two-thirds of a unit wide and the stiles one-half of a unit wide.

Frame keeps panel from warping or twisting.

smaller area of seasonal expansion and contraction.

Panel is free to expand and contract within the frame, so it will not crack.

Panel is glued or pinned at its center only, so dimensional changes occur equally on both sides.

Mortise-and-tenon joinery provides plenty of glue surface and resists twisting and racking.

Top rail

Stile

When the grain of the panels runs vertically, minimal clearance is needed in the rail grooves; more clearance is needed in the stile grooves to allow cross-grain movement.

Center rail

Mortise-and-tenon joinery provides plenty of glue surface and resists twisting and racking.
