recommendations for rail & stile router bits?

I have 4 cabinet doors to make for a fireplace built-in, and possible a dozen when we renovate our kitchen. What are some recommended stile & rail router bit makers?

My first preference for router bits is usually Whiteside, mostly because they are U.S. made. But I have also used Freud, Eagle, MLCS and CMT bits. Honestly, they all work pretty well. Your limiting factor may be the profile you choose. The basic ones should be available from most all of the manufacturers, but there are a few that aren't.

If you are not using raised panels, make sure the bit set is adjustable for the thickness of panel you plan to use.

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it
