Default wainscoting

looking to do wainscoting in a couple rooms so looks like doing it from scratch will end up less $$$$ then getting kits, my question is i'm looking at vertical panel and rail and stile bit sets and most are for doors and 3/4" to 1" thick stock but most wainscoting is 5/8" stock, i'm looking to build it out of MDF since i'll be painting it.
so can i use the larger bits or do they make a set for 5/8" stock

Thanks

Hi Rick, welcome to the forum
Try this link:
MLCS Rail and Stile Carbide Tipped Router Bits 2
You need to scroll down a bit to find the "minuature" rail and stile bits.
Why not just cut your rails and stiles from 3/4" MDF though? Likely cheaper than a special bit set unless you have other uses for it. Just a random thought from a wandering mind

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Honestly I was going with 5/8 since that seems like what I see everywhere that people use and Im just trying to figure out what bits I need, seems like the larger bits put a slot in the rails for the panel and the smaller bits put a rabbit on the back side, and if I go with the larger set that put the grove in the rails wouldnt the panel stick out past the rails ? Im sure this is a dumb question but figured I ask

Hi Rick, you can undercut the panels, or use 1/2 or 1/4" panels, 1/4" for flat panel or beadboard.

The only dumb question is the one that was not asked. If you have a question, there is a good chance others need the answer also.
