Default Raised Panel Projects

Couple of raised panel projects that really made the dust - lots of raised panels all made w/vertical raised panel cutter.

Hi Henry,
Let me be the first to say, "WOW!!!" Your fireplace mantle makes me want to throw rocks at mine. In the picture, it looks like your high vertical fence attaches over the top of your regular fence. Neat idea!! Do you like the vertical bits better than the horizontal? And what HP router are you using?

Please post more info. on the type of wood and finish on both the mantle and the cabinet. They are truly beautiful.

The high fence I made to fit over the normal fence - tight fit w/no fasteners.

I used a vertical raised panel bit with a bosch 1617evs. Only used vertical because the table I have won't accept large diameter bits. I'm making another table arrangement just for horizontal raised panel bits which I haven't tried yet but want to also try. The vertical bit gives a smooth finish with no need to sand (can run at top rpm).

I had to hand fit the Bosch 1617 to the old steel table and make a separate switch. The nice thing about this router is that it comes out of the base easily for bit change so the base itself can be totally fixed in place.

Also tried a little stair cap work and post covering with flat panels in this case. These were originally contractor steps that I tore out completely. The router and some good stile and rail bits can do alot of nice work.

Nice work Henry!!! I love the cabinet. Thanks for the input on how you made the raised panels, I was wondering how good the vertical panel bits were. What brand bit did you use?

I have been buying bits for a long time - got out the raised panel bit I used and it says "craftsman" on the shank. Funny, I didn't think craftsman made these type of bits. I do see alot of makers now for vertical raised panel bits. It's a two flute cutter and the only thing I note is that you have to take multiple passes but you can run at the max rpm for good cuts. You need a high fence, and a cut out around the bit that you make with the bit itself helps. This bit, together with the stile and rail set I have, have allowed me to make some nice stuff !
