Jointing the face and edge of the board helped tremendously, and while a bit of learning curve in resawing, I cut everything thick so that I had some room to readjust to counter minor cupping.
Always worth further examining, I split those tenons because they were 1/4" long, it actually produced a more accurate joint than sawing, given the height. I'm extremely particular about grain, so those stiles had everything going for them before I decided to split. If the grain were running 20 degrees to the face, then it wouldn't have gone well.
I've enough experience, I suppose, in cutting all the tenons that I proceed carefully. I cut them two at a time, then once the first two are cut I use it as a guide for the third. In addition, I can catch things before they go totally south and adjust. Maybe next I will post a video of that so that people can see the effort involved. Still, it is faster than removing the battens and cutting them individually.
I cut the rabbet with the panel and stiles assembled. I do that for the reason that It allows me to have a perfect straight line across the entire piece. I kicked myself for not taking a photo of the process but basically I place a batten at my mark and use a dado plane with a heavy set nicker. Then, before cutting, I chisel cut the edges that would break out, to prevent them from doing so.
Bumbling forward into the unknown.
