Panel Spacers

When assembling raised panel doors, I always used commercial spacers that keep the panel from rattling. Recently I ran out of the spacers, but happened on an alternative that works even better.

I found that the loop side of a hook and loop fastener works much better for spacing panels, for a couple of reasons. First the closure usually has adhesive on the back, so it stays secure in the groove during assembly. And the soft loop material has just enough give to allow for expansion with changes in humidity.
