OK, so I’ve officially decided to do raised panel doors in my kitchen and will build them myself.
I rather like this raised panel profile from MLCS:
The only bits I have for rail/stile, that are actually “sash” bits are from CMT, just a simple ovolo profile sticking bit, and a matching coping bit. I bought this set because the coping bit is flat topped without a bearing, enabling me to do extended tenons easily. I also have a hollow chisel mortiser, so this joint is a not a big deal for me.
Here’s a picture of some storm sash I mad with the bits:
The sash are 5/4” pine with 3/8” tenons. I’m wondering if I can use these sash bits in 7/8” stock in conjunction with the MLCS raised panel bit, and an additional slot cutting bit to make my doors.
Many thanks to you all.
