3' x 7' double sided sliding door. Laminated the panels together then ship-lapped the edges.
Material was originally 7" tongue and groove siding.
Panels were approximately 5 1/2" wide x 1 1/4" thick.

Customer is providing the hardware and installation .

Looks good, but that is a lot of width for movement.
How are you compensating for that?

Thanks Mitch.
The siding is White Pine with moisture content reading 9% prior to assembly.
I planed the material down to 5/8" , let it rest for a couple days, then glued/clamped for 12-20 hours.
The edges of each panel were rabbited to receive a spline along the entire length/ height of the door.
While I expect there to be some movement, I anticipate it will be shrinkage across the face(5" direction) vs. warpage/ twist.
I've found White Pine to be very stable.
I opted to shiplap the edges so in the event it does shrink further( most likely this coming winter) that there isn't daylight showing through.
