I am a cabinetmaker, but not a solid surface fabricator, and have been given the role of coordinating some cabinetry that integrates the two trades as more than just countertops. Specifically, cabinet doors that are supposed to be solid surface laminated to a wood panel (BBirch, VC, MDF, or PC). I have a grave concern for unbalanced construction. Is this legitimate? My fabricator doesn't seem to care/understand.

From contributor C:
I certainly wouldn't laminate solid surface over substrate. I am new to solid surface as well but my understanding is that all solid surface would be no problem, maybe with battens of solid surface if the doors are wide, but laminating the solid surface to another material is a big no-no.
