I have built an armoir for toy storage for my grandson. I am having difficulty figuring out how to build doors for this unit.
Can anyone give me a suggestion?

There are many ways to build doors using different styles. As to the general type of door there could be a flush door that lies on top of the face frame and usually extends 3/8" over in all directions, a rabbeted door that has a rabbet cut on all four edges of the door and nests in the opening, again 3/8 over the edge in all directions or a fitted door that fits into the opening but requires a stop on the inside to keep the door from falling through. There are, of course, custom doors that use several of these techniques to finish the door. The flush door is usually the simplest but let me know what style you prefer and I'll help you build it.....MJH

Thanks for your prompt reply, Mark. Because of the way I constructed the Armoir (with crown molding that attaches flush to the top of the opening), I believe your last choice would work best - fitted doors inside the frame.
