Water damaged kitchen cabinet doors


Hi,

Thinking of buying an older house that apparently had a water leak below the kitchen sink at one time. Plumbing's fixed but there's water damage to the inside bottoms of the 2 wooden cabinet doors beneath the sink.
I think they're stained oak.

The doors are warped & cracked at the inside bottoms about an inch high & the wood's curled & protruding outward. I'd rather fix than replace since it's not real obvious when they're closed & I still want them to match the rest of the cabinets.

Should I sand & fill with wood putty? Sand & cover with a trim piece? Has anyone else dealth with this issue who can offer suggestions for a cheap DIY fix?

Appreciate any advice you can give.
Thanks very much..

Photos would help.
Warped doors are hard to unwarp. Are these plywood doors? Stile and rail doors?

You should start your own thread. An increase in details and a decrease in the happy faces would be appreciated.
