The raised panel is captured in a groove made in the inside edge of the frame
members. Panels are made slightly smaller than the available space within the
frame to provide room for movement. Wood will expand and contract across the
grain, and a wide panel made of solid wood could change width by up to 6mm,
warping the door frame.
By allowing the wood panel to float, it can expand and contract without
damaging the door. A typical panel would be cut to allow 5 mm between itself and
the bottom of the groove in the frame.
A raised panel has a profile cut into its edge so that the panel surface is
flush with or proud of the frame. Some popular profiles are the ogee, chamfer,
and scoop or cove.
This router bit is for machining of traditional panels & frame doors with
heavy duty routers mounted in fixed positions, either inverted or overhead.
These Raised Panel cutters perform best at lower speeds. They are all suitable
for use on natural timbers and MDF (medium density fibre board).
This router bit has a
6.35mm shank (shaft) that will fit most small or large routers
with the correct size collet. Please ensure that you select a router bit with
a shank (shaft) size that will fit into your router collet.
router bits are manufactured in Taiwan.
