Frame-and-Panel Door Construction
How to determine frame-and-panel door dimensions
To size an inset door for a specific opening, first subtract 1/8" from the size of the opening to allow a 1/16" reveal around the door. Then figure the part sizes as follows:
*The length of the stiles A equals the door height.
*The rail length B equals the door width minus two times the stile width C plus 3/4" for the two 3/8" tenons.
*The panel width D equals the length of B minus 1/16".
*The panel length E equals just less than the stile length A minus two times the rail width C plus 3/4".
