Is it possible/practical to untwist an armoir door?

Hello folks, My name is Tim,I live in the Houston area of TX,and I wish to tap the collective wisdom of the group,if I may. I have been a homeowner for many years,and I can fix most things around the house with the aid of an array of tools I have collected over the years,and the occaisional help from my 18 yr old son.My latest project has me wondering. I was recently given an armoir by a friend,and I believe part of the reason was because the 2 opposing doors on the front would not close properly.Closer inspection revealed that the left side door was twisted.And to describe how; imagine for a moment that you are looking at this piece of furniture from the front.It is as tall as a chest of drawers with 3 full width drawers on the bottom half,and three interior drawers up top hidden behind 2 doors ,each of which is about 14" wide and 20" tall.The door on the left,when closed as far as it will,is twisted in such a way that the bottom right hand corner will not close to meet the stop,by about 1".The problem is that that same door has a small strip of wood on the back that serves as a stop for the right hand door.So I tried taking off the strip, but the door is noticeably twisted still,and I would like to fix it if it can be done simply. The door and armoir are solid wood,and seems much heavier than pine,but not as hard as oak in my estimation(I had to drill a few small holes for new magnetic keepers) so I am wondering if the door can be heated or steamed and held in a jig of sorts to restore it's shape,or if there is another way to take out the approx 1" twist and save this piece of furniture. What do you folks think/suggest. Thanks in advance for any ideas or direction. Tim

Probably new doors is the answer. Post pictures in alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking so we can see the problem.
