Looking for Cabinet door source

I am building a stand and am looking for some cabinet doors.. Home Depot wanted $70 dollars apiece for them.. I need four and $280 is more than I have budged for the entire project.

Does anyone here build cabinet doors?

Looking for 4 raised panel doors.. 15 wide 30 high..

Any good internet sources?

All help and suggestions appreciated.

Thanks

Usually it's cheaper to buy them from a mill, than to even buy the material to build your self, especially raised panels.
I bet there's a cabinet/mill yard near you that will be much cheaper than what HD charges.

Ikea sells just the door fronts at a much more reasonable price. Flat doors will run you around $10 any type of raised panel starting around $30.

You also might want to try any local cabinet businesses.

Or do as I did, find and old kitchen cabinet someone thrown out and unscrew doors from it. Little sanding and staining and here you go...
