Eric , I am not planning to go to that much work, I see no reason to. You can raise the door further than it would ever be raised normally and you should be able to cut it over sized port to starboard , bow it out , and if thin enough slide it between the door and sides. I was having trouble finding very thin veneer , but the two Bills just posted that I need to look  at furniture suppliers or woodworkers supply.
