Lipped edge cabinet doors
Working on a project for my son and DIL which is a fireplace surround with base cabinets and bookcases above. The base cabinets will have 2 doors in each cab. I want to make raised panel doors with a lipped edge 3/8" by 3/8". Looking at router bits on the net, I see bits made for this including a rounded over front which is what I want. My question is concerning the rabbet these bits create. The rabbet is beveled about 10 degrees. Is this necessary? Can't I just use a regular rabbet bit that cuts a square rabbet and then round over the front edge. Are typical 3/8" inset hinges bent to this 10 degree bevel? Doesn't look like it to me. I don't want to buy another router bit if I can do it with bits I already have on hand.
