Inside Bead Miter on Stile and Rail Panel Door

Hi. I'm new to the forum and have a question. I'm going to be building some stile and rail panel doors for my kitchen cabinets. To match the design of some other cabinets which will be staying, the doors I will build will have a bead on the inside edges.

I can't figure out though how to neatly and accurately cut the 45 degree mitre in each fo the corners so that the bead edges meet.

Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks.

Are these going to be built with mitered corners or a standard rail & stile door?
Go to http://www.sommerfeldtools.com/Instr...Ds/products/4/
They have some dvd's that show how to build mitered or standard cabinet doors with some good information.

If these are a standard rail & panel you will have two cutters & your cope cut & the ends of your rails should fit the profile of your stiles & that would give the sharp looking joint

Standard rail and stile. I already have the bit set, and I want these to match the design of the other cabinet doors. Meanwhile, I'll check out the DVDs.

Thanks.

With the standard construction of your doors the cope cut will fit tightly together with the stiles to give the mitered look. Watch the dvd's & you will understand the construction of the doors.

woodsmith has some good podcast you could watch also. Many diferent subjects to watch.

I checked out the Woodworkingonline.com podcast on frame and panel doors. It all makes much more sense. Thanks for the lead. I can't wait to get started.
