Hey Everyone I just hung some doors on a Jelly Cabinet I made. The right door isn’t sitting flush with the other door. Im not even sure how to explain it the top left corner of the right door seems bent out away from the cabinet. I attached a few photos, hope they help.

Looks like the right door is warped,maybe the wood you used wasn’t dry enough,I had a cabinet door like that but not as bad,used a magnetic catch behind the part the stuck out,the magnet helped keeping the door straight quite a bit but was never perfect.

Your wood may not have been jointed perfectly square. That’s why lumberyard wood often is hard to work with in door making. It needs to be perfectly fla (no twists!) t, and with perfectly square edges, and perfectly cuts on the ends. Otherwise, warping is inevitable.
