    One door of a cupboard is warped along its length.
    The top and hinge side fit perfectly but the side opposite the hinge is bowed out such that the non hinge side progressively bends away from its matching partner door and bottom of the door sticks out by about an inch.
    The door is of the ledger & brace variety and is constructed of pine T&G. It is about 2ft wide by 3ft long.
    Currently it is 'natural' stained and now I wish to paint it - which will only enhance how the misfit looks.
    Help please can anyone out there advise how to flatten/re-warp the door ?
    Thanks

    Personally I don't think you'll ever pull the door straight again.....is there any possibility of fitting an internal bolt or heavy duty catch to the inside, to hold it square?
