Actually – that was my first thought.
But I decided it would be easier to get sharp corners by doing the outside in 4 pieces and mitering the corners—as opposed to having to go back and chisel the corners.

Having now done one that way—I am rethinking that.
Just finished one as a sample for the customer—if they decide they do want to go this way—that means 16 more—-I have a feeling the rest are probably going to be done—‘your’ way.

This is my first time at ‘overlaying’ anyting other than simple molding.
The last time I had a project where I had to do ‘fake’ panels – I did it by routing into the existing door.

No one has commented on that option—so I conclude the overlay method is preferred these days.


-- Those who insist it can't be done - should politely refrain from interrupting those who are doing it.
