This brings up something that baffles me. Used to be panels were planed to 5/8” thick. When the profile was raised, you would have 1/4” inch left over to go in the groove. Now that everybody and his dog has his own planer, panels have to be 3/4”, which requires an undercutting bit. Some of the panel raising bits i see wouldn’t leave you enough wood for the tongue if you were to have a 5/8” panel. Seems like our timing is off somehow. I really prefer having 5/8” panels, and don’t like the undercut panels very much (if at all). So what am I missing here?
