Im sure most everyone has a router bit or cabinet bits to make these raised panels however I dont and really dont do many doors with raised panels.However Im figuring on a job for a kitchen cabinets and they have raised panels now but the kitchen is 30 yrs old so i might be giving the sled a workout.Bevel on this set up is 10 degrees but I will tilt the blade another 5 to 15 and it gets a better profile

Hey

That is how I learned to make them – with the table saw. Looks like you have the process down nicely. This setup still works and is well worth the time to effort to perfect as there is minimal setup time and the jig is a straight forward one to use. Thanks for sharing.

Yep: That’s also the way I make them. Your jig is much nicer than mine. Good job.

Kiefer Ill admit I tried just holding against a tall fence and it was disaster.Fire wood so I started thinking and came up with this.When I searched in some old magazines there are many stiles of building the jig.

The jig Looks good, but wouldn’t it be best to make the cross grain cuts first to prevent blowout?

Stefang you are right but this was just testing to see where my adjustments angle should be. Even this way there was no blowout.At 15 degrees it make a better looking frame and I think slight under 1/4 will do just fine.

Thanks all for replies

Grandpa – Thanks for posting this. I made my son a queen sized bed with raised panels on the headboard and foot board. Was contemplating buying router bits, but saw this. Ran out to the shop, threw one together, and we were off to the races. Made 8 panels using your jig. Don’t have a handle on it…yet.

Thanks again.
