How should I shoot these door slabs? I am thinking I should lay them down flat and shoot from above.

The size of the doors, resp. the large needed shooting distance, wouldn't make me shooting them from above. Can't you rent simple sawhorses, which are hidden by the doors, to lean the doors to? Leaning the doors slightly back-angled is also possible.

You need a pretty wide distance for the main light to avoid severe fall-off, i.e to get an even light across the door.

What background is planned?

They are standard size entry doors. Do you not think the 9' studio stand will provide enough distance?

There won't be a background since all these shots will be COB'd. So just white for the shoot.
