Julie Finish AND clear coat your panels, not your stiles and rails. When they are completely dry, put them in the frames and put green tape on the finished panel edges where they meet the stiles and rails. Glue up. I find I always have to sand the frames, as careful as I am about fitting them precisely, I always need to sand them and often leave them slightly oversized so that I can trim them to fit after the glue up. Then finish your staining, leaving the tape on the panels.

Years ago I made some panel doors and did not finish the panels first. The panels did shrink and the line between the panel and the frame is NOT a pretty sight. Live and learn!

BJ, would you have the same problem if you used blue painters tape?

bobj3 Hi Peter

" PVA solvent?" Not to sure, but you get white clear vinegar in the food store..I should say in the states..in a small plastic bottle or a gal.bottle..

bobj3 Hi Vaughn

Many stain the panels b/4 assemble but most of the time they are stain the same as the frames..

If I was going to make it diff. I would stain the panels 1st.then set them to one side and then stain the frame b/4 glue up, once it's dry ,glue up the parts and then put the clear coat on all the parts after dry up..you will want to do a dry fit b/4 anything, you will not get a 2nd. chance..for any sanding you may need to do..

You can use some white vingar and some bottle water ( 50/50 mix in a spray bottle) to wipe up the glue if you have some come out of the joints..
but do it right away do let have a chance to seal the wood..

That sounds pretty complicated, and I doubt it will work with raised panels. How do you guys finish your raised panel doors? How do you keep from streaking the panel with stain once it's mounted in the frame?

vikingcraftsman It depends on how steady you are. As I get older I tend to finish parts then assemble. I also will use a sanding sealer then after assembly do a final coat.
