I always loved the active construction work and during my retirement years I do renovation jobs because I like it plus to keep me busy and get some extra cash for my hobbies. My last project was a new kitchen as per attached photos. This project started by first replacing the floor which was in a very bad shape and when the customer saw the big difference between the new ceramics floor and the existing old cabinets decided to change the cabinets too. Since their budget was small, I only used ¾” thick pine frame on the doors with a 1/8” groove to accept veneered plywood in the center. From start to finish it took me a total of 29 days work.
There is a possible new kitchen project and so far I think that they will go with some pretty expensive cabinets. In order to prepare myself I have these questions:
1. My router is 10 Amps. Is this big enough to do raised door panels?
2. Are the “matched set” stile and rail bits a good choice?
3. Do the vertical raised panel bits do a good job or it’s better to go with horizontal raised panel bits?
4. Is the horizontal raised panel bits with back cutters a good choice?
5. Are the Cathedral and Ached door templates a good investment or I should make my own?
