Question:I built a kitchen for my nephew from the ground up and it didn't turn out too shabby-for a beginner.The top is white hard maple and the rest is red oak.(See attached photo.) These have been installed in his kitchen since June 09.
A problem has developed on the cabinet side at the end of the long 'L'.The panel is solid oak, not the cabinet grade plywood.It has warped inward about 3/16″.No other warping has occurred in any of the other cabinets.
What could have caused this to happen? The panel was pieced together from two pieces and is 3/4″ thick.' Submitted by ggleixner Answer: That's a very impressive job.Nice work! When you refer to an end panel, I don't know if you mean a base cabinet or upper.
If you glued two boards together to make a 24″ wide base cabinet end panel, the problem is that the boards you put together were too wide to use this way.It's best if the boards in your glue-up are 4″-6″ wide, so two boards for a 12″ wide upper would work.
A couple things can lead to a glued up panel warping.It's possible that the material wasn't dried...
