    Giving this some thought before I actually start the build. The ends of this look a little unrefined, as I have herd Paul say a few times. I’m thinking of dividing the single panel on the ends into 3 vertical panels to dress it up a bit. By doing that will I create expansion problems?

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I’m by no means an expert on wood movement, but I think it will probably not cause a problem.
    When using a bigger panel you leave some space in the groove for the panel to expand. A panel that is one third the size will expand less. If you leave it the same space as the bigger panel it will have more than enough room to expand. I’m not sure about contraction, but other people might know more about that.
