Water damaged kitchen cabinet doors

3942 2
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..
