Topic tags/keywords: tip cedar tablesaw shaker milling raised panels

At least that is the way I do them. I’ve been working on a Cedar Chest lately, and needed a few Shaker Style raised panels. After cutting the blanks to the right sizes ( the top panel is 3/4” wider) I set the blade height at about 1/2” above the table top. Set the fence over so that a “tongue” would be to the outside of the blade. Ran all the edges through.

Now the tricky part (for me, that is) Re-set the blade at 10 degrees, and set the height to just “kiss” the tongue ( ah, not that kind of kiss, guys). The ends were then marked and run through with the miter gauge. A re-set with the fence and the sides were run through. A picture or two:


This shows the rip cut with the fence. Another view of the finished cuts:

Not too bad?

Lots of work to be done yet, but it’s getting there. Red Cedar, it do have some wild grain to it…

Good job. I am glad I don’t have all that sanding to do. Once you make a few more of these you will reward yourself with router bits. But I bet your workshop smells good! I made 3 doors on my TS that are the cove type. It took forever and created a mountain of sawdust. Once was enough.

Nice job.
A nice sharp rabbet plane to clean the cuts and there will be no need to even sand these.

I found out that Red Cedar don’t like to be handplaned. However, a nice, fresh-cut piece of glass does wonders. Used like a card-scraper, does a nice clean-up. All the panels are now done. A Cedar chest is complete. A fake top drawer, with two “real” drawers below. Looks like a three drawer chest of drawers, until one lifts the top. There is a cedar lined bottom storage area until the top/lid. Book-matched boards for the lid. WILD grain all around. WHEN I can get my wireless set up, I’ll post a bunch of pictures…

Just a bump, hopefully Bertha will find this. Not that hard to do, even on my 20+ year old Craftsman saw. Even though Red Cedar likes to burn a lot, there wasn’t any on these panels.
