Hi ALL! Help please, I am trying to make OAK four panel doors for the first time. I am having a problem when I pass the panel through the spindle moulder, it isnt the same one end of the pass to the other with a difference of a good few mm. Any ideas why this can happen? Is it because my panels are not flat enough? If that is so any suggestions how I can ensure the panels are perfectly FLAT. I use Plano clamps to make the panels. ANY TIPS PLEASE I AM DRIVING MY WIFE NUTS!!!

Hello Jax,

Welcome to LJs. I am sure that you will find this to be an exciting and rewarding part of your woodworking experience.

You did the correct thing in posting your question as a forum topic as it will get more reads there. As for “driving your wife nuts” at times that may not be such a bad idea. :) Personally I tend to want to do that after mine decides to “straighten” up my shop, which drives ME nuts because I can’t find or get to any of my tools.

By spindle moulder I assume you refer to what some know as a shaper – not significant in itself. Not clear what is happening – is fence on shaper offset for cut if necessary depending on cutter. All pieces should slide smoothly, square, no clamping/forcing. Do not waste any money on sander to try to fix problem. Your pieces are cut (saw) or routed slightly off point.

Are you making 1/4” flat panels, 3/4” raised panels? What is size of rail and stile (wide/thick); 1 3/8 entry door or 3/4” cabinet, or what?

I tried to send you a private message. please reply to it if received. Thank you – let’s go from here. You refer to mm. – you must be in Canada, eh? I am making panel doors at this moment, substantial experience happy to share; 45 WW years experience.

-- Regards, Steve2
