I guess I'm basing this off of Matt Cremona's sideboard enough that i can reference it. I mentioned in a few other threads that I'm going to make a Sideboard where I will use the interior of the doors

So frame and panel construction isn't the most exciting so i skipped some of the repetitive parts and skipped to the fun parts. Sides together and long rails cut brings us here. The stock f

So i left of trying to pick out material for the doors. I had the panel material set aside from the begging of the project but getting strait grain fro the rails and stiles was the trick. I think I ma

I think you are being a little hard on yourself re the DT's if they look that good from 3" away think how nice they will look from 3' away :)

I welcome that judgement. If you want to remove the drawers and take a look at that by all means go for it. That's just one of those details that is a lot of effort. For the record the front is the same thing but they'll be covered by an 1/8" veneer.

I am going to plug the holes with off cuts from the drawer bottoms.

This is going to be beautiful. Can't wait for the finished product.

Sidebar: what happened to your white balance? Looks like it's made of purple heart (or as my grandson used to call it, "ham wood").

LOL, umm not entirely sure. I've gotten lazy and haven't been fine tuning it and have just been letting auto white balance do it's thing.

During glue up i set the doors on the concrete floor and I wonder If i set them in an uneven spot that ended up gluing a twist into the doors

I had something similar a while back.  Generally concrete and wood don't play nice together.  Aways back, a knowledgeable member here told me you can get a weird air and moister interaction between the wood and concrete.

I should note for the sharp observer. The grain on the drawer fronts is intentionally shifted down slightly. Because of the overhang of the top and the fact that most people will observe the drawer fronts standing next to the side board I left a bit more space above the crazy figure on the top.

The parallel clamp heads were separating the wood from the concrete floor so there wasn't any direct contact for moisture. I think the floor was just uneven in opposite directions where the clamp heads were. This caused a twist that ended up getting glued into the door. Like the below images but just imagine my doors instead.
