My kitchen cabinet doors have a rounded over inside edge on the rails
and stiles. How are those put on there? I mean, are they machine before
assembly or after? And how woudl I duplicate it at home?
The reason I ask is sometime down the road I want to build a cabinet
ove rmy toilet in the bathroom to match my sink cabinet.
Also, in a magazine I have they sell for the router a "rail and style"
bit. It looks sort of like it puts a toungu and grove in wood. What are
these used for?
You really need to take a woodworking course.
My guess is you make the rounded over inside edge with the router bits you
ask about down below, but perhaps you could post a picture of what you are
referring to, to be sure.
Somehow he/she/it continually proves there is such a thing as a stupid
Not to mention that, IMO, flipping the "no archive" bit is anti-social in a
group that's main thrust is as a repository of woodworking lore/knowledge.
And the F*&^#ing questions are so general as to be obtuse:
"I have a pile of wood, can I build a house out of it?"
That's why I have it filtered ... which more would do so until it learns to
contribute, even if only passively by putting some thought into these
I haven't read a post here in probably 6 months and I see the crap still
It's a shame no one wants to give a civil answer.
Looks like this news group should be retired now that we have the almighty
Then you haven't seen strypie's posting history...
The problem here is one newbie who posts the same questions repeatedly, while
never making the least effort at all to answer his own questions, either by
experimentation or by Googling. He seems unaware of the existence of
woodworking books, libraries, or bookstores. He's been politely asked
repeatedly to turn off the 'no-archive' crap in his posts, and refuses. He's
worn out his own welcome.

I have bought and read countless woodworking books. But there is no
book that can teach as much as learning from others with personal
experience. None of the book I have explain the inside bead on a raised
panel door like I have on my cabinets. None of them explain the "rail
and stile" bits either. That is why I asked. I received one helpful
reply and that was the person who posted a link that explained the rail
and style bits and how they form the decorative inside bead.
I have alot of questions that I cant ask anyone other than on here
because I dont know any woodworkers personally. And I do actually try
the stuff out I ask when I can. I posted pictures of the knife drawer I
made useing alot of advice I received on here.
I just dont understand.

I don't know about the other folks here, but I'm a complete newbie
to a lot of this stuff. I'm in a very similar boat to yours. You ask
pretty good questions; ones most newbies like me would ask. It seems to
me that you're interested in this as a hobby, which is awesome.
Then you add the whole no archive thing, which is odd. It's
especially odd when you consider the other newsgroups you post in, and
decide to not have your messages archived. It just seems to me that
you're not willing to add anything to the group, but just take away
what you need and give nothing back.
There have been many very helpful, insightful posts made in response
to your questions and every time you post a message with that no
archive thing, it seems like you're just wanting people to help only

I personally stopped even considering responding to your questions
with what little knowledge I possess because your habits here have
irked me. And yes that is my problem, and I'm not expecting you to
I'm mainly responding with my opinion on this because you said that
you didn't understand why people are getting grouchy with you, and I'm
throwing in my interpretation of things.
I have a feeling that if I had been one of the ones spending lots of
time and effort helping you, I probably would be less than pleased.
Man, you've got to feel some empathy for this
Guess we should also feel some empathy for your lack of a life. Think about
it. You're following the exploits of a guy with sexual problems.
Uncalled for. I don't like his no-archive crap either, but what does
this add to the conversation? I personally think he should continue to
use his no-archive bit when dealing with personal issues, and leave
them off when dealing with general info thinks like on this forum.
