Do I Need A Shaper To Make Stile & Rail Drawer Fronts?


There is a way to make the doors and not have to worry about cope and stick rail and stiles. Instead of a rail and stile, shown in your picture above, you could run all the stock in lengths needed then on a miter saw 45 them and attach them that way.

With the rail and stile set I have, I have to add 13/16" to the rails to allow for the profile cut when making cope and stick. Cutting them on a 45 and wrapping the raised panel you won't have to worry about cutting so many pieces dead on.

Like the door below:

Trouble with that is, a miter is the weakest joint known to man, and a rail and stile is one of the strongest, needless to say I vote for strong.

You are 100% right, but many doors are made with the rail and stile 45ed, I personally don't make doors like that, I was throwing that out there as another option.
