The rails of the door were not coped, they were made the way the plans showed with the molding cut being mitered only in those corners. (I used the FMT to make the tenons and mortises on the door frame.) This hybrid construction came about because of my desire to make the muntins the way the original construction was…with 3 horizontals instead of 9. I could get that to work despite a huge effort, so I used the door frame I already had, and it didn’t need the coping…the only copes were on the muntins. That said, the premier R/S set will allow you to cut longer tenons, and then hand cut the deeper mortises you would need. That was what I did on the muntins when I made the cope cut there…on the end that went into the door frame. The door frame was molded with that same roundover bit I mentioned earlier. Your cabinet looks great, it will be a highlight in your house once finished. I hope my description above made sense, if not let me know I’ll try again. Did that pic help with they way I cut the muntins?
