Default interior door bits - need advice

I have made alot of raised panels in cabinets, etc with my set-up but so far, only on 3/4 inch material. I want to try an interior raised panel door - thickness 1-3/8 inch. Looking at some of my existing doors, there is a raised panel with a very flat profile, cut of course on both sides. The panels appear to be less than 3/4 stock. I use vertical bits normally for the raised panels and to get a good profile only on one side there is barely enough thickness left for the groove. Does anyone know if these are some special panel raisers with this very flat profile to allow cutting both sides and still having a decent tongue thickness ? Also and for the 1-3/8 thickness, I was planning to use 2 boards 3/4 inch glued together and planed to 1-3/8 - is this the right approach ?

I have seen these type of sets and will nedd these stile and rail cutters too but they don't include the panel raiser and this is the part that I am not sure about - to get a shallow raiser to put a good profile on both sides of the panel. I have cabinet sets but they are for 3/4 stock and only for a one sided raised panel.

Hi

You are on the right track, by gluing up two boards and then mill them down to 1 3/8",run both sides and you will have want you want to end up with to make the door..
I would make the male part 1/2" thick..unlike the norm 1/4" thick..
