Which Router Cutter For House Door Stile Edge
I want to make an exterior house door using Utili hardwood.
See attached photos A and B. Photo A this is not a house door but am using the image as an example. Along the inside edge of the door stile a profile, moulding has been applied. What type of cutter do I need to use to get this effect? Moulding router cutter,bead profile router cutter, roundover cutter or another type of cutter?
Also will be cutting a rebate under the profile to accept a panel lower half of door and glass at top half of door.
This style I understand is called a half glazed door.
I would need the curve of the cut to go down a certain depth to quite close above the rebate I'm cutting.
The profile cut has to go down to the depth I require but retain the same degree of curvature.
How do I select a coping cutter for the matching profile on the door rail? So the corners of the rail and stile mate correctly.
I'm going to be using a 1/2" Dewalt 625 router. Mounted in a Triton table and stand. I'm looking into getting a coping sled that I can use on the Triton table to do the matching cope cut on the door rail.
For more information on the above and other questions I have see my other post titled - Coping Sled Suitable For Triton RTA 300 Router Table
