    Raised panel bit (5/5), Aug 30, 2013

    By Bill Grimes (Baton Rouge LA US)

    I just tried this on some 3/4" stock, and it's terrific. Of course, good sense tells us to ease into these cuts since there's a lot of wood to remove. Doing that doesn't bog things down at all. On a whim, I pushed end grain through, complete cut in one pass. Beautiful results.

    2 flute, carbide tipped with totally enclosed ball bearing guide. This versatile router bit creates dramatic rail and stile doors, picture or mirror frames, chair rails, crown moldings or other decorative trim. Combine with any raised panel router bit to create highly decorative raised panel doors that until now have only been available through high end cabinet shops. Use a 1/4" slot cutter to create the slot for the raised panel or a rabbeting bit to make glass panel doors, mirrors or picture frames. The stock is mitered at 45º, glued and biscuit joined to create a sturdy secure joint. This bit is designed to work with 2-13/16" wide stock and a recommended thickness of at least 3/4". Use in a 1/2" table mounted router. For cup hinges, use 1" thick stock (minimum). 1/2" shank.

    2 flute, carbide tipped with totally enclosed ball bearing guides. Make perfect rails and stiles easily and quickly with just one bit. Just lower or raise the bit to cut the rail or stile respectively. That's it! No need to reassemble cutters, remove the bit from your router, or change your table set-up.
