stain or dye them,,,not topcoat. this is to prevent glue squeezout from inhibiting the stain or dye from penetrating your panel. that said, i don't do it this way. i have yet to glue a panel to the inside of the frame. let er float, and she wont bust up your door. Traves

The masking works good. Be sure to use a good quality painters masking tape.
The reason for prefinishing the panel is to prevent unstained edges from showing if the wood shrinks in the winter when the humidity is low.
