Hi

Yes, just my 2 cents,,the big panel bits are made to cut the panel in one pass but most take more than one pass the norm, so it's the same by using a 2 1/4 HP router,I will say making 3 cuts works the best, in that way if you have any burn marks the last pass will remove them...

You can get the big panel bits that come with 2 bearings, (small one and a big one) just for that job.

A 2.25 hp will certainly do the job. Wood species will dictate the # of passes.
My raised panel bits are all CMT with the set of 2 bearings. After using the bearings (which do a fine job) I found it simpler and quicker to adjust the fence for each cut.

Hi Gene

How do you make your arched raised panel doors ?
With just the fence adjustment ..the sommerfeld way with a 1/2 fence ?
