I’m moving along on my new kitchen cabinets. I do seem to have a problem when routing my rails and stiles.
I’m using hard maple lumber and a new set of Sommerfeld bits.
My problem seems to be occasional tear out or even some chipping. I’ve tried reducing the amount of material I remove. I’m up to 4 passes now before the final cut of about 1/8”
Do I need to make even more shallower passes or is it time I start suspecting something else?
