Hi: here's my two cents worth. There are a number of bits on the market that will cut the stile and rail with the same bit. However, some of them don't reference the cut from the face side of the material. That is the face should be down on the table with both stile and rail cuts. that way if there is a minor difference in material thickness it will be on the back of the door and more easily sanded down without showing. I use both the single cutter, and the sets with separate cutters for the style and rail.
No matter which you use they will not fit together unless they are cut to the full depth. Shaper cutters work the exact same way. Woodnut65
