Thanks for the replies, glad I’m not the only one stumped by my out of the box idea. Yes Nathan pretty much shiplap just cut at 45 and the expansion/contraction is what I’m concerned about. I’m worried that when it contracts I’ll have a gap down the middle which is why I was considering gluing that edge but don’t want it to crack if it’s glued solid. I think the pin from the back into the spline may be the way to go.

Aj, it is 2 doors, basically like patio doors hinged on either side so it opens to a 6’ opening, you can see the doors to the shop open in this pic I posted of the Adirondack chairs I made. You can also see the metal frame running around the edge of the doors with the hinges mounted to it.
