Hi all. Haven’t posted on here in awhile. In the midst of doing a basement Reno. I’m Looking at making some cabinet doors to cover up my electrical cabinet. I’m curious does anyone here use S4S lumber for cabinet doors or am I better off using S2S lumber. I do have a jointer just curious. Thanks.

No big advantage to S4S over S2S—you’ll have to straighten and rip to width no matter what.

I like to buy my lumber in the rough, so I can both straighten and flatten. Flat is important for doors. You can probably use S4S or S2S—as long as you can find flat pieces.
