Question on Raised Panel Cabinet Door


I have oak kitchen cabinets with raised panel doors. We would like to remove the panels from 1 pair of doors and insert frosted glass. A bit of an upgrade after 15 years. I still have 1 extra pair of doors (from dishwasher filler cabinet).
Is there a simple way to remove the panels?

Sorta :}, you have to have a rabbitt to hold glass anyway so you need a router, then make a jig, and you CUT the back of the frame, pull panel out, then finish rabbitt to whatever dimension you want , put glass in and retainers on back or set glass into silicone.

Thanks Skymaster

I solved it. The cut out for the raised panel is offset such that a "rabbitt" exists. I took my skill saw and made plunge cuts into the panel away from the geometry that formed the rabbitt. I finished the cuts with a handsaw; then with a wood chisel made a few gaps in the remaining piece of the panel (part held in stile and rail); then pulled the pieces out by hand.

It did the job.

Have been to a glass shop and ordered glass.
