OK Bob and I got together today to have a training class on Raised Panel construction.

See Bob blog on Mortise and Tenon - Help Needed

#1 We forgot to take pictures through the process.

#2 He forgot half of his wood at home.

#3 We couldn’t find enough pieces to make 1 full door so we looked through my Popular stash and found a 12” piece that would give him the required 9” piece.

#4 We cut my popular to get it to the correct size. Then we found a way to get it out of his wood. So much for pre-planning.

#5 We cut the longer pieces into 4 3/4 width size (4 pieces) 80” long

#6 We cut 2 3/4” width pieces (4 pieces) 80” long

#7 We cut pieces 12” long at 4 1/2” (8 pieces), 8” (2 pieces) and 9” (2 pieces)

#8 We face jointed the 4 1/2” wide pieces

#9 We thickness planed the stiles and rails pieces to .999 thick. He wanted 1” but we missed it by a 1 thousands

#10 We then did the edge jointing to get one straight edge. Bob running the machinery.

#11 Cutting the raised panel pieces to length.

#12 Cutting the 12” long pieces to 11 3/8”

#13 Cutting the Router profile on the 11 3/8” wide pieces. Some had profile on one edge and some had it on both edges. We had a “T” to tell us which surface to be up and a “V” to point the edge that got cut a profile. One stack had both sides and the other stack has only one edge.

#14 Cutting the profile on the raised panel.

#15 we were so tired and it was 7:00 so we had been at it since 10:00 AM with a lunch break.

So Bob loaded all the pieces in his truck and headed home.

So he’ll get to cut 3 – 8” pieces and 3 – 9” pieces for the stiles.
He’ll get to cut 5 – 22 1/8” pieces for raised panels and 4 – 9” pieces for raised panels

and plane the same and put the router bit profile on his wood and touch up some of the wood we cut and didn’t cut the raised panel profile deep enough.

A good time was had by all. Had the door open all day and no Air Conditioning (Bummer)

Karson, sounds like a regular day in my shop, except for :

#1 We forgot to take pictures through the process.

#2 He forgot half of his wood at home.

#3 We couldn’t find enough pieces to make 1 full door so we looked through my Popular stash and found a 12” piece that would give him the required 9” piece.

#4 We cut my popular to get it to the correct size. Then we found a way to get it out of his wood. So much for pre-planning.

#5 We cut the longer pieces into 4 3/4 width size (4 pieces) 80” long

#7 We cut pieces 12” long at 4 1/2” (8 pieces), 8” (2 pieces) and 9” (2 pieces)

#8 We face jointed the 4 1/2” wide pieces

#9 We thickness planed the stiles and rails pieces to .999 thick. He wanted 1” but we missed it by a 1 thousands

#10 We then did the edge jointing to get one straight edge. Bob running the machinery, etc. LOL.

Sounds like a great experience for both of you.

That is a pretty impressive router/table saw set up!

Thanks Dennis. The saw from the edge of the sliding table tubes to the endge of the router table is about 10’

When you put the arm on the sliding table it extends about 12 1/2’ If I move the planer I could probably cut the end off a 10’ board. But I can work with plywood without having to mave the planer.

My son-in-law was down a couple of weeks ago and we moved the air compressor and then moved the saw closer to the wall on that side, giving me more room on the sliding table side.

The only downside right now is the length of a board that can be cut without opening the big doors. We had to open them with Bob’s 80” lumber for his bi-fold doors. And of course we had them open for the saw and i knew we’d need them open for the router so we didn’t close them and turn on the air conditioner. It was about 93 yesterday. But it was 83 in the shop with just fans running.

Hi Karson,

It was a fun day and a special learning experience. The wisdom that comes from your experience is priceless.

Thank you so much for the lesson and for capturing the experience in pictures and dialog. Oh! In all the excitement of the day I forgot that we used some of your wood. I owe you. Don’t let me forget.

Have a great day,

Bob

Karson;

Well at least you got to play in the shop today, which means you had a better day than I did. I sat in several traffic jams, pretty much all day. I did have air conditioning though

I hate it when that happens.

So how popular was your poplar?
Got any left? ;>)
