Chuck,

Great info! I guess after watching dozens of videos on YouTube I assumed it would be a solid piece. All the demos showed the operator grabbing a giant, honking solid slab (so it seemed anyway) and putting it o the router table (or shaper) with the proper bit, speed, several passes, etc.

So........

I took a closer look at my kitchen cabinets (photos below) and noticed that the raised panels ARE laminated pieces as you have suggested. Again, thank you!

I don't think I can use MDF or plywood as I am staining to match the existing cabinetry. To your point, every reference I can find clearly indicates that either MDF or plywood is FAR MORE stable in terms of warpage, etc.

Is there something I am missing on these photos, or are these cabinet raised panels something other than laminated oak pieces? (i.e. I don't believe these are MDF or Plywood somehow treated cosmetically)

If these are laminated pieces, as I believe they are, I'm thinking to laminate 3" to 4" pieces together, alternating the grain direction then cut to final size. Also, been looking for reasons to crack out the Biscuit Jointer, any reason I couldn't use it between the joints before glue up?

This link seems to describe several methods....

Saving me tons of grief so far, I look forward to any other thoughts!

Thank you Jim & Allen. The initial attempt took several hours, but now I think I cold draw this in 20-30 minutes, maybe less.

The most challenging aspect was the center rail, pictured below.

Again, huge kudos to the helpful YouTube videos on door rails and stiles.

The only other thing that can imitate wood is a vinyl coating like you see on the cheap stuff. That's obviously real wood in your photos.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Chuck,

Thank you for taking a look, I appreciate your thoughts.

I was wondering if I was missing something.
