Topic tags/keywords: doors raised panel kitchen

Hi. I need to make 4 rasied panel doors for the base unit for shelves in our new kitchen. I’m looking for a router bit set, (3 piece) to make them witth. the panels we have are 5/8” thick and have a 1” bevel showing. All the sets I have seen are ogee or somthing like that not a bevel, and are for 3/4” thick wood. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks Joel

I believe you may find what you are looking for at precision bits. I have not tried there bits yet but they do have a lot of different designs.

I believe the MLCS bits will work with 5/8” or 3/4” panels.

Something like the Infinity 90-502?

Or… if you want a simple bevel profile, you can cut that on the table saw with a tall fence.

Any panel raising bit can be used for either 5/8” or 3/4” as you are routing face side down.

The rail and stile bits are a bit fussier and generally set to 3/4”.
