Building my first cabinet doors, and I have a stupid question. Do you rout the outside edges of the rails and stiles before or after assembling the door? It seems to me that after the door is assembled, one could rout the edge profile onto all four sides of the door, eliminating the requirement to cope the ends of the stiles on a sled. What's the accepted method? Thanks.

BUT BE CAREFUL if you are going to use European-style hinges (concealed) then you will need a special bit. You can get away with a rounding bit if you only take off every small amount. If you use an ordinary bit you will find that when you drill the hole for the hinge that the hole will go right through the thin edge of the door.
