Create raised panels for cabinet doors, frame-and-panel furniture, and architectural paneling with a raised-panel bit. The cutter forms a fillet to delineate the raised field, a shaped band around the field, and an integral tongue to fit the panel groove in the frame members. The profile contour and the reveal width varies. All tools have 1/2" shanks. Must be used in a table-mounted 3+ horsepower router and run at reduced speed. Use these bits for panels with curved edges. Multiple passes recommended.
?WARNING! For Your Safety 1. The methods illustrated here are only intended for use with a table mounted router. 2. Do not exceed the recommended RPM for each of the bits. 3. Use a miter gauge and clamp when routing the ends of the rails. 4. Use a push block or push stick when routing the door styles. 5. Use a guard at all times. 6. Use eye and hearing protection. 7. Do not use the methods in this set of instructions unless you feel that they are safe for you.

Note: 'A' reflects the total length of cut. Therefore you must deduct (usually 3/8") for allowing the panel to recess into the frame.
