Paint Cracks at Joints

I painted my kitchen cabinets white this past fall. I applied two coats of primer and two coats of Sherwin Williams best oil base, sanding between each coat. I must say for myself that this is as near a professional job as could be. My problem is that I am getting hairline cracks in the paint where most of the wood joints are. I caulked where cabinets were installed next to each other and those seem to me alright. What did I do wrong and can if be fixed.

After you primer and sand you need to caulk possible cracking points, like so, you can fix them by caulking them, smear into crack with finger and wiping it off with a wet rag just leaving the caulk in the crack, get a small artist brush to carefully touch up with, thinning the paint or repainting the surface to a stopping point, like corner to corner.

Hope this helps
