This will be my first time building cabinet doors. I’ll be building quite a few of them for our basement remodel project.
I’m looking for the cutters to use. I’m under the impression that a shaper will do better, but FWW’s articles seem to be centered around a router.So, here are the relevant tools I own:
I think 3hp is very generous for the router. The 1hp Jet is wired at 230v (if it matters) and certainly seems more powerful than the router.So I’m leaning towards using the shaper. Feel free to advise me otherwise. Options seem to be:
I don’t know, there are so many options…. If I bought something right now, I’d buy stile and rail router bits since I know they’d work in either, and then a raised panel cutter for the shaper.
