Thanks for the input. If I’m understanding what you are saying, you used your FMT for the 1” tenons on the upper and lower rails of the door frame. (I would then assume you used the FMT settings for the mortises on the Stiles.) If that is the case, how did you use the R/S Rail Bit for making the coping cuts on the end of each rail; wouldn’t the existing tenon be in the way? In regards to the upper door, did you also use extended tenons for the mutins as well, or just for the joints between the rails and stiles? Also, did you cut single glass lights, or did you make it one pane of glass?

Here’s where I am in the build…as you can see, the doors will be the last build process on my cupboard as well. I’ve been putting the door construction off, but you are giving me some desire to press on.
