Default Small raised panel for a box

I would like to make a box with a raised panel in the lid. I know you can make these on a table saw but I would like to do one with a router and without a lot of complication.

Could you just use a portion of a vertical panel raising bit?

Dumb question probably.

Hi SB

" Dumb question probably" = NOT

Yes and it's easy to do and very safe

see my Gallery if you want a tip or two for the jig..to do it..

You can also do it without the jig if you want to..

Bob, I can't find it in your gallery because you have a huge gallery and I am not sure how to find what you are directing me to. Can you direct me there?

Thanks

Bob, I think the horizontal table would be the way to go. I don't know how thick the raised panel stock would be. I wonder if I would need to use one of these.

Hi SB

You can but you don't need to , lets say if you use 5/8" thick stock or just remove the stock from the front side of the panel until you have 1/4" thick on the side/edge of the panel..
Many ,many ways to make raised panels..

You can also use a rabbit bit or just about any router bit to do the same job ...as the one you posted, but it will be a square cut..

And you'er right the Horz.table is the easy way to make square cut panels...It takes less than 2 mins to make one...from start to finish....

Or would this be ok for a raised panel on small wood? It doesn't have the usual flattened area that goes inside the groove.

It would look like No. 2, not No. 1. Okay?

Did you do those using paint net? That is neat.

So, no mechanical problem with this one? Expansion/contraction?

Thanks
