Cabinet door shaper Bits

Hi everyone. I Recently bought cabinets from RTAcabinetstore.com and I need to make some custom cabinet pieces that match the door frames. I contacted RTA and they will not give me any information about their cabinet maker so that I can find out what kind of shaper bits are used to make the doors. I know it is called a pillow style door, and I have searched all over the internet and cannot find anything even remotely like what I need. Anyone have any clue how to find what I'm looking for??

That door takes two separate cutters, chances are you would have to have those cutters custom made. The cost to have them made would probably be more than changing out all your doors, unless things have changed that much since I was in business.

Have you considered using their doors or decorative end panels to make the additional cabinetry for the parts that you need the specific molding?

I think is was on a molder ....

This company has many stock molder knives. There may be one that works, or two as Jim suggests, BUT you need a molder to make them.....

They will also make custom knives:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

If I'm honest that doesn't look like wood, looks more like vinyl or other plastic to me. If you wanted to make that then you would have to source or make matching moulding, could try a few local "custom" cabinet shops. I know I've got a moulder knife similar to that style although mines quite smaller as it's for brickmould. Moulders are easy to run, they're basically fancy planers with extra knobs levers and widgets.



Never heard the term "Pillow style door" before. Normally that's called a "Raised panel". Might have better luck searching with that term.

The pillow refers to the curved part of the frame on these doors.

What part of the country do you live? Perhaps someone nearby has a molder

that is a common profile around these parts, used a lot in door and window casings. custom ground cutters.

the only method they use around here is a shaper (with power feed) or a moulder.
