Straignt Raised Panel with a Roundover Stile

I have this HF raised panel bit set. I used it once and it worked well for what I had to do.

Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

I want to start my stereo cabinet during my vacation at Christmas. The bit set I have creates a round over stile a cove raised panel but I want to make a straight raised panel. What are your opinions on what that would look like? I am debating on purchasing a whole new matching set versus just the straight panel bit and using the round over rail and stile that I already have.

It would probably look OK but you are mixing round and straight cuts. If it doesn't bother you any, then I wouldn't sweat it. If you wanted to have square cut rails and stiles, you can make them with a dado blade and mortising jig as opposed to a cope and stick bit set.

Please explain "straight raised panel" Do you mean that the edge of the panel is a straight bevel, as opposd to a curved one. If you are referring to what I think you are, then it could be done on a table saw.

When I say straight this is the bit I am talking about.

#8696 for $54

I am having a hard time deciding what I want to do. I have roudover rail and stile bits already but they’re cheapos. I originally wanted straight panels like what the bit above would create and I think the straight bit and the roundover would look ok but…..

For $120 I can pick up this set.

The panel bit in this set is an ogee but I’d also get another rail and stile to choose from as well and a door lip, glue joint, drawer lock bit.

So I’m just being a little kid and can’t decide what I want to do. I can save a little money go with the straight bit that I originally wanted or I can spend more and get a lot more but I end up with the ogee panel bit and not the straight bit.

Decisions……

David,
flip a coin, they will both look nice, just depends on what you want it to look like.

I agree with Mike. Either will look good.
