Re: warping kitchen shaker doors

Most stable would be 22mm MR MDF.
A quick way would be a 9mm groove all round and loose tenons with a 9mm panel.

Re: Kitchen

My tip is to make the carcass slightly different. If you make the bottom 36mm wider and the sides 18mm shorter and screw up into the sides then you have a bit of manouverability on the carcass to get your 0.5mm, doesn't need buscuits or dominos and there is no chance of the weight of the worktops pu...

how do you create the door itself? 6 layers of 3mm
Depends on the style of the door.

5 piece door would be layers of veneers to make up to 25mm thick rails, flat would be either 3mm MDF layers or a triple ply 1.5mm material.

usually double ply, make sure if you are vacuum pressing you have plenty of strength in your former, if it's totally hollow it will probably collapse in on suction.

I don't know about that model, but one of the most expensive issues with belt sanders is the threads being worn on the rise and fall rods.
