In prep for my upcoming kitchen cabinet build (what did I get myself into?), I started practicing some of the cuts and procedures last night.
My warped and featureless router table (Craftsman Pro table with a Milwaukee router) actually did a great job at routing the quirk. Even 8’ lengths were not difficult and I only ended up losing about 1” on each end due to the clearance plate not being flush. Sadly a new router table is not in the budget right now.
Anyway, the plan will call for either a rail and stile door inset to a beaded frame OR a plain face frame with a plain solid door with a bead detail around the entire edge. As of now, I’m only considering applied, although I’m looking into other options of beading the frame/door directly.
So after I have the molding cut, I need to rip it. This led to some high pucker moments as I weighed my options.
1: Offcut side for the molding. Should be just as accurate if my stock is square. Seemed to work well, but the stock I was using got pretty thin on the fence side as well
I’m trying to work out if I can get some molding pieces off of wide stock and have the remnant be suitable for other parts of the face frame, so it’s not too skinny and I’m not wasting 1/3 of every board.
Any other ideas for this? Thanks.
