Here's a quick video demonstrating the inlaid cross grain back supports that we install in our solid wood, flat panel, modern cabinet doors.
Most times flat cabinet doors are made from plywood with Edge banding, we prefer to use solid wood for our cabinet doors. The only drawback with this is that when you get a wide door with all of grain in one direction, the panel can become susceptible to cupping across the grain. .
The way we counteract this is to cut some dados exactly half the thickness of the door, across the grain, in three locations. These dados are cut into the back of the door. Then, 3 strips of wood are glued into these dados. The wood grain on these strips is perpendicular to the grain of the rest of the panel, by orienting the grain at 90 degrees, the cupping action of the door is counteracted. This will make for a very strong, and very stable door.
