Has anyone ever made a jig for raised panel doors using a table saw? I am re-modeling the kitchen cabinets and want to make raised panel doors.
Any ideas?

I have not personally, but there are plenty of LJ’s who have and maybe can send you a pic. Basically make a u-shaped sled that goes over your fence with the blade side board being at least a foot tall and 12-18” wide. Set the angle of your blade at the desired angle, about 15deg, clamp board to the jig and slide through. Sorry I haven’t made one because I use a shaper. Hope this helps some.

well, I have done this a time or 3. i made a jig that I attached to the tablesaw and ran the wood across the saw blade at an angle. it is better to take very small increments, so you dont get kickback. i had to make some “barn doors” and the taper that was way too big for a shaper was also a cope. draw it out first, then figure your angle and taper if necessary, then try some srap to see if you are getting where you want to be. it is amazing what you can figure out, just remember to be careful, and respect the cutting device!!!

hope this helps, but once you start makin jigs, you will lose shelf space fast… kidding

Check my site out. I made a cedar chest with raised panels on the table saw this summer. Under all projects, you see how I did it. They turned out great. Looking forward to your finished project.
