Smile Shaker Doors

Hello. I am new to using routers. I have a Bosch router kit and table. I am building a hood for our range vent. I have an idea how to build and assemble the side rails, top and bottom. I am wonder what the forum would suggest as the best method to cut the groove for the center panel. I am using Hickory side rails and top / bottom (3/4 in thick) and 1/4 in thick hickory plywood for the center panel. I have a 1/4 in plywood bit. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Joe

Bob,

Thank you for the information on the bit. It looks a lot easier and would make a clear cut than what I think to do.

Joe

Your Welcome Joe

It's a great bit set, if you use the cutter for the 1/4" plywood it takes a little bit of a setup on the cutter, you must remove one of the bearings off the female cutter, and use just the washers that come with the set, then use the other cutter to setup the fence for the pass on both cutters.

If you want to see the setup please just ask and I will post a snapshot of the setup it's a easy setup...but must be done right for the plywood stock, and a jig for a story stick..

Hi Joe

Here's some snapshots of the set and how to set them up for the 1/4" plywood
They are a matched set and should be setup that way to get the cutters in the right spot.
You will see one cutter without the bearing in place ,use the one with the bearing on it to set your fence up and zero out the cutters once you have it set put a stop block on the back side of the fence and switch the bit out and then put the fence back in place with the stop block doing the work for you.
The story board is a easy way to set the cutters in the right spot, it's just a block of wood with 1/2" holes in it to push in the shank of the bits, the cutters need to over lap a little bit so you set them right.

You will see a true 1/4" cutter, it comes on the set as default item and can be used to make door frames for the raise type panel doors.
You can also use the same set to make the Shaker raise panels if you want to.....

Note ::::if you don't want to buy the lower price set you can buy the higher end set at a much higher price ,by why with only one slot cutter.

Default Welcome

Welcome to the Forum Joe...

Turns out I'm in a similar situation as you! I'm looking to create Shaker style cabinet doors out of Mahogany.

I've come across paired bit sets made by Amana - part of their Instile & Rail System.

Does anyone have any experience with these particular bits?
