Just wondering if anyone has made cabinet doors like this. Since it is
next to impossible to find true 1/4 " Oak plywood, just been finding
3/16th stuff, would it be possible to get 1/2 " Oak plywood and using a
raised panel router bit, trim the BACK of the plywood to get 1/4 "
thick and use this for a front panel of the cabinet door. Please
remember that the cut out will be on the back of the door, I know
someone is going to say that I should use 3/4" Oak hardwood, glue
together and then use the raised panel bit, just don't need the added
expense of that.
Yep. It works great. It not only makes the stock a predictable size,
but the shoulder can mask any variation in the dado if you use a router
instead of a dado stack for the job.
I've gotta wonder, though- what's the raised panel bit for? That's
going to look awfully funny if you run plywood through it, unless
you're talking about something a bit different than what I'm thinking
of. A regular straight bit should work fine on the plywood to get it
down to 1/4"
