Makeing cabinet door Question
Now that I have built my cabinets I need to make the doors. I have never make cabinets or even doors for that matter. However I have to do it anyway. I am going to buy 1 x 2 1/4 birch stock and this is what I am thinking about doing. Using a 1/4 inch router I am going to cut a tenten in each end of the rails and a mortis into the stiles. I have a small router table and every bit under the sun but an Oge bit. And at over $50.00 each I am not going to buy one either. I am thinking of cutting about 1/4 inch off three side of the end of the rails about 1 3/4 inches deep. Then cut a 1/4 groove in the middle of the end of the stile about 1 3/4 deep. Then after the doors are all glued up and dry, I will route the outside of the door with the same 1/2 inch round over bit I used on the drawer fronts. And then route a 1/4 notch into the back inside of the door to recieve a 1/4 inch beeded birch panal in most of the doors and glass in the rest.
I want the tenten to show on the top and botton edge. That will go well with our old farm house style.
Now do you think this will work??
