I think more details on the shape of the doors.

Will you just use solid walnut to build a frame around the 3/4” maple plywood? If so you probably don’t need to use a router but use biscuit inserts to align and help hold the walnut framing in place and glue. You could use either square but joints or miter joints at the corners.

If you are using a panel like those shows in the response above you will probably need to cope a joints in the walnut frames. There are sets of cope and stile router bits that work well but you must use them on a router table.

Finally how will the doors be mounted. On the surface of the a face frame, flush with a face frame or sort of a European style with no face frame. Some of that hardware can be expensive so that may affect your decision if you have a budget.
