Cupboard door panels : inserting
I'd like some advice regarding the best way to affix, from the rear, panels into 4 cupboard door frames.
I'm part way through my latest large project : a 2.6m tall, 1.2m wide, 0.6m deep free-standing wardrobe. I'm at the door stage - there are a total of 4 doors (2 large, 2 small) and I've constructed all 4 door frames from 80mm x 18mm rimu. The corners are held together with floating tenons. My plane was to use a rabbeting bit to cut a rabett all the way around the rear (i.e. interior) side of the frame - and then lay a panel in. The panel will be made of 10mm (or so) thick rimu which has been glued, using ship-lap joints. The plan was to let the panel 'float' in the recess - but clearly I need a way to hold it in place. What's the best way to do that?
I know the proper way to do this is using two specialist bits just for this purpose (cope and stick?) - however I don't have those bits.
