Default Kitchen Cabinet Doors

What is usally used for making cabinet doors, i am mostly concerned with the thickness of the wood. I mean can the rails, stiles and the rasied panel all be the same thickness or does the rasied panel have to be thinner
Thanks Kevin

HI Kevin

The norm,,they are all the same thickness , but they can be anything you want to use,,,it comes down to what type of look you want to end up with.

You will need a R&P router bit set that must be use in the router table

Don't forget you are not making a front door for the house,keep them light looking..but strong they will need to last for years and years..

Can i router 3/16 of the back of the rasied panel so the front of the panel will be flush with the front of the rails and stiles. But again the back will also be flush, would that be ok
Thanks Kevin

Hi Kevin

The panel bit with a back cutter will do all the work for you,,all the parts to the doors will be flush with each other, front and back ..

Welcome, Kevin. Just wondering... If you want the panel flush front and back. Why not just use a solid door?
