Hi everyone, I am getting ready to make a set of raised panel doors for floating nightstands in my bedroom. My question is, with the face frame complete, I am about to use the Raised Panel calculator to get my numbers for the stiles and rails. Do I need to subtract 1/8 from the overall stile and rail dimensions to get a reveal of does the calculator take this into account? I only want to make these one. Thanks.

Mike

Mike, im a little unsure w hat your asking. Are you talking about sizing your panel ? What and where is the reveal you mention ? Are yu talking talking inset doors and the associated reveal ?

I also used the Rockler “space balls” and they work great.

Yes inset doors with 1/16th revel all around, sorry for the confusion.

You ll need to make those allowances for the finished door you want. I dont use the programs for my computations, but I dont imagine that any program would know to make these allowances. The programs are going to simply compute the door component dimensions for you. I would just feed it the opening size then shave it to fit. JB

Have your say...
