« Part 1: Rabbets, dadoes and countersunk screw holes Part 2 of Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet series Part 3: Raised Panel Door Fabrication »

I kind of got away from the blog for a while. Mostly because I haven’t seemed to have had a lot of time to spend in the shop.

I got the panels glued up this past weekend. Got the divider and shelves installed as well as the back. This cabinet project is my first attempt at making raised panel doors. I got the rails and stiles cut and the panels run through the router. I have a Triton 3.25 hp router mounted in a table. The Triton cut through that cherry like nobody’s business. Dialed the speed way down and shaped the panels taking four passes using a Freud raised panel set. I did have to run to Rockler to pick up a different plate for my router table as the hole in my exisitng plate was too small for the panel bit.

I am hoping to get the door put together sometime later this week. I will get some more pictures posted as they are available.

Thanks for looking!

I can’t seem to figure out what I am doing wrong with the pictures. May be an iPad issue. Picture it rotated 90 degrees!

Nice project, I love seeing things come together. I recently started blogging in here and had the same sideways picture problem as you. I solved it by rotating the pictures with the stock paint program on my pc. There may be an easier way but it worked for me for now.

Cfrance, thank you for the tip. I will give that a shot the next time I post a picture.

The ironing board cabinet has been on the back burner all week. I decided to tune up my jointer mid-week and am waiting on the arrival of a new set of knives. On the positive side, it gave me the opportunity to start the outfeed table for my table saw that I so desperately need. Pictures of that will be forthcoming.
