If you wanted to stretch (a lot), you could cut your raised panel using the standard “cut a cove on a tablesaw by sliding the piece diagonally across the blade” technique. There’s a video linked off this LumberJocks entry, a little bit of discussion here, a review of the Rockler jig, a project with tablesaw cut cove molding, a Wood Whisperer episode on cutting coves on the tablesaw, and, finally, some raised panel doors with the coves cut on a tablesaw.

Disclaimer: I haven’t done this, I don’t have a tablesaw, but it’s always seemed like a really cool abuse of tools to me!
