Default stile & rail router bit set

Hi everyone,

I am newbie here. More than 30 years ago, I was working as a carpenter disciple for more than one year, but never touched any woodworking stuff since there. I have regained some passion for woodworking recently and am trying to make several kitchen cabinets (part of the kitchen remodeling). I'll keep the majority of the old cabinets (one reason is for saving money, another reason is that I like the door pattern type.) I want to make the new cabinet doors look the same or very similar to the old ones.

The existing stile & rail pattern is very similiar to Amana 49537 edge bit (sorry, cannot post the link here). Unfortunately, I searched for more than one week on internet, cannot find a stile & rail set with Amana 49537 pattern type.

Can any experienced craftsmen here provide some information where can I get such a bit or is there any doable work around?

Thanks a lot!

Go to MLCSWOODWORKING.COM and take a look at what they have. Either the reversible or the matched set will work. Also they have free shipping.Don't bother with the set up block. You will need a table and a powerful router.

Thanks, JW!

Yes, this is the link I was talking about. I want to find a stile & rail set with this profile to match the existing cabinet doors.

Thanks! I did check this site before and noticed that the most matching set is #8839, but not sure if I can re-assemble them, since this set will cut a profile on two sides?

I got a Bosch 1617EVSPK router and Bosch 1171 table. Also planning to get a Incra V27 miter gauge. Is this enough?

You don't need a miter gauge to machine the doors unless you cut your lengths on the table saw.

The #8839 set you were looking at on MLCS are for passage doors 1-3/8" to 1-3/4" thick. These are not for cabinet doors.

The Amana 49537 is not a rail & stile set. It will machine that profile into the outside parameter of the doors. You want a similar rail & stile set to assemble the doors correct?

Hi

I don't recall every seeing a R & S bit set like that.
