Thick panels, from Vl in. up to the thickness of the frame, essentially are flat doors with oversized edge banding. Thick panels of plywood or MDF generally are glued into their frames with loose tongues or wooden biscuits. Despite the solid wood frame, the panel is the structural element.

The flat panel can be routed or dressed up with moldings, or it can be painted. With this approach, you could even make a close imitation of a traditional frame and panel. It's almost always simpler to finish the panels before assembling them to the frames.
