"square corners" This tread drew a lot of interest but no definitive answer came forth, so, still being curious I did the obvious thing, I sent an email to Laminex industries asking how they did it and to my surprise received the following reply in just two days.


Hi Harry,

The internal corners are cleared using a special clearing router bit which
is on a separate program on a CNC router. It approaches the corner at a
45Degree angle, and with a 45 degree cutter. This squares up the corner.
it is not a hand held router option.

Regards,
Peter

So, we now all now know how these mass produced, but individual size and pattern door are made. Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions.

Hi Harry

You are the man, yes sir.. I quickly read that post and if you can believe it I was stuck for an answer or even a suggestion.

That does make sense though.

Do you ever get that feeling that nobody ever listens to you?

My apologies Rob. Obviously my lack of CNC knowledge is showing.

I think I was pretty close the first time around.

"Here's a site that sells cnc bit sets to make MDF raised panel doors.
They say a 'veining' bit is used to square the corners.
Let's not forget that a cnc router can move in ways our routers can not. For this task I would say it might have to tilt the cutter and plunge down and sideways at the same time.

MDF Raised Panel Door System - Blades LLC "

I now think that with a plunge router with a tilting base (like sante has), on a guide rail or with a varijig, it would be possible.

I lay down the challenge to you folks !

You did indeed suggest the way it "could" be done Rob and I take my hat off to you, but I was after an answer that told me exactly how they are done in mass production.
