I’ve got some straight raised panel doors to make for a project and needed a better jig to cut them. This one was put together in about 10 minutes and works pretty nice. It’s set for flush sitting 3/4” panels, but could be made for whatever is needed. Comment, questions, and critiques always welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Good idea!! Thanks for posting this. I’ve got a project in the works that I can adapt this to. I’m not making a raised panel for a door, but the operation is similar enough, and I’ve been wondering how to do it.

Traylor,

What angle do you set saw blade to cut these panels? Looks like a slick set up & would like to try it Thanks in advance for the info. Reds

The blade can be set at any angle and it will depend on the height of the cut and if a lip is desired on the middle. For the illustrated cut the blade was 2 3/4” high and set at 5 degrees off 90. For the intended project door panels I’m going to make the height 2” with no lip so the angle will have to be a little steeper, probably 7 degrees. Hope that helps and if you need any other info let me know.
