I run a one man cabinet shop and have decided to look into makeing curved cabinet doors. I dont have a cnc router, but do have a vacuum press. Anyone ever make rasised panel kitchen cabinet doors or have a idea how to do it?

Thanks for the links. I have read both of them and have printed them off. Just have to wait for my machine to get here next week to try them out.

Use your credit card.

Save yourself the headache and cost. Buy them already made. I made curved doors for many years and then started buying them a couple of years ago. I can’t make them for what it costs me to purchase them. And if they get it wrong, they have to do it again (for free), not you.
