Thanks for the replies so far. But I’m no really concerned about panel movement as BB ply is very stable. I was really wondering more about the degree to which my 2.25 inch poplar frames would contract in winter from high humidity conditions right now. Another question: Since I used tongue and groove construction (glued) for the frame how can there be any expansion at all? The rails won’t expand along their length right? So the stiles, glued to the rails. can’t move along their width. Beginner questions I know. But this is my first major cabinet project.
