Good morning,
some of my cupboard doors of my caravan are bent. no problem closing and latching, but they do not close all the way, as there are gaps top and bottom. the doors are supa wood and are wrapped doors.
I have tried to straighten them by placing weights on each end by suspending the door on a brick in the middle. I have done this over a three week period, but when I remove the weights, the doors go back to the original bent position.
Anyone with knowledge of a solution to get my doors straight will be great.
Many thanks
there are pics in my gallery of the doors

Go to a wood centre that supply wood to the guys that install kitchens. Give them all your measurements of doors. They will cut it up to size and do the edging and holes for hinges at a minimal fee. Normally you have to buy a whole sheet....but that will be enough to replace all your cupboard doors and drawer fronts to entire caravan....even those that has not start bending yet. Should not be more than R1000

I want to keep the door original, as wood centre will not router the grooves design in the doors.

Thank you

Stanley, you need the correct amount of moisture , heat to go with the weight. A timber specialist in PE should be able to assist or give you professional advice.

 

I can't find your pics in the gallery

I doubt that this can be fixed.  If so it would mean that all the laminating be removed then you can try to straighten the wood then re-wrap them again.

Super wood is nice to work with but when it has warped or got some moisture that part you get rid off.
