This is the sideboard I’m building for my kitchen and this is where I need help. Can someone tell me a good site to go to or a book or magazine to learn how to make raised paneled doors. I want to put 2 doors on the bottom and it’s about time I learn how to make them. I will be building an entertainment center too before I do these doors, so I have plenty of time to learn. Or even just advise from other lumberjocks on how to make them. Thanks for any advise.

Thanks, Gary. I tried that site earlier today and it freezes up on me. Don’t know why.

Type in on your tool bar woodwhisperer and hit enter that will bring you to the pages of the sites pick the first one and that should take you to it for some reason when I type in “THE” woodwhisperer it does that but try that and if it brings you to the home page on the top right type in raised panel doors and search and it should bring you to episode 29 “raising Arisona” great vedio

Thanks alot guys, but this looks really hard. I’m watching the video from the woodwhisperer. This is gonna cost me if I buy those bits, and will I be able to do it? Don’t know. But I doubt it. I’lll have to check out the table saw method too and decide which way is easier. And of course, my husband is gonna have to help me with this! And thanks David for your compliments. I seen this sideboard on the internet for around $300.00. I spent $87.00 for wood and have this so far and my 2 side panels built and 2 shelfves for my entertainment center. I think I spent another $40.00 last week on wood. Today was kind of funny. We went to Home Dept to buy the beadboard, which we couldnt find anywhere. But online they said the store had it in stock for $37.00 a sheet. They couldnt find it either at the store. They finally did, way up on top. So they got it down and got me my one sheet I needed. Then they decided to move it to the paneling area. It’s unfished stainable and paintable birch. Well, when I got to the checkout, it wouldnt scan. She sent a kid to check the sqew, where it was, but they moved it and moved the sqew number too and he came back and rattled off a number. She punched it in and it rang up $19.99. I was honest and told her that it wasnt right, that it should be $37.00. She said, do you want it for $19.99? I said yes. Paid for it and left. Can’t beat that. Should have bought two of them.

Raised Panel are not that hard to make but like I said make a sample 1st that is what I did I used left over pine boards. Bits are expensive but if you’re just going to do a few you can get a cheap set. You’re going to have to pactice 1st for sure.
I wish you all the luck take your time, you also need a large router 3 1/4 HP.

janice ,
i make all my doors with the table saw and dado blades .
all my panels flat ( cheap is just 1/4” ply ),
or mostly i split my 3/4 wood and plane it to 1/4” ( saves wood ),
and either make little cut outs on the edges or cut shallow groves and paint .
rails and styles i grove in the middle for 1/2” by 1/4” wide .
the rails have a tenon 1/2” long , 1/4” thick .
with the same 1/4” dado set up ,and the fence set to 1/2” ( from fence face to outer edge of blades ) .
i sneak up on the thickness of the tenon by raising the blades little at a time ,
until i get a snug fit .



if you don’t understand this , write me and i will make some dawings and explain better .

David, this is for you. Oh, crap!!! You guys all talk foregien language. You scare the you know what out of me. I think I’m more of a hands on type of person. This is why I don’t post anything but pictures. Cant explain how I do it, I just do it. Your doors are beautiful, but I’m thinking I cant do this! However, I do like the table saw method better, I think. I have my grandpa’s dado baldes. I’ve never used them. Don’t even know if they can be put to use on my table saw, but would love to find out. Gosh they have to be 50 years old, but they were from sears and so is my table saw. Maybe I’ll find outl I think I’ll have my husband try it out first. Let me know if you think this is a real bad idea.
