| 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
Most probably with a roundover router bit (or molding cutter on a
shaper) before assembly. In a home shop, I'd suggest a roundover
router bit equipped with a pilot bearing.
| 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.
I would suggest you cut the roundover prior to assembly with a bit
equipped with a pilot bearing. You'd find it impossible to rout the
roundover at the inside corners after assembly.
| 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?
These bits are used to make all of the molding cuts of rails and
stiles in a single pass, as opposed to multiple passes with more bits
with different profiles.
