2008-05-20 My First Rail And Stile Panel

  Image:DanFirstRailAndStileRaisedPanel.JPG The depth of field on the picture is way too narrow, I foolishly let the camera choose the aperture, but these are my first two rail and stile panels, from eastern maple, main panel was glued up, planed to 1/2" thick, and then was raised with a few passes of a straight bit, and a bullnose for the curve.

I need to get better at the miters, error accumulates very quickly, and especially with a frame this thick very small errors become big gaps, but this'll work well as the ends of a set of drawers for the workshop, and is a great learning experience and dry run for the upcoming kitchen cabinets.
