Had a client who had typical flat panel doors and wanted some thing with a little more style. They wanted raised panels to mimic the style of some of their internal doors. BUT – they didnt want to go with all new doors from scratch – and they didnt want to go with the usual routing the pattern into the door.
So—I got some 3/8” plywood and cut some fake rails, stiles and panels complete with mitered corners.
Not having a cove bit handy I edged everything with the rounded portion of an ogee bit.
Glued and bradded these pieces to the front of the existing doors.
Yeah—I thought it sounded a little strange too – but – that is what they wanted.
And – a few coats of paint and some new hardware later—- have to admit—it didnt look too shabby.
Customer was happy anyway – and that’s what counts.
Biggest issue I had was with an ‘innovative’ new product – paint/primer mixed that proved very difficult to apply and took over a week to get past being tacky.
