When One Door Closes
The old saying, “When one door closes, another one opens” could simply be talking about poor cabinet door latches, rather than a philosophy to live by. But that discussion is for another time…
Cabinet doors come in many different types and styles, and they can really be enjoyable to build. And like many woodworking tasks, there is more than one way to achieve success. In today’s Weekly, you’ll find a few videos that demonstrate building raised-panel doors. In Tricks of the Trade, Chris Marshall uses a router table and some great cope and stick router bits that create a classic door. I, on the other hand, use a table saw to get the job done in a more basic fashion.
And as we go through January, don’t forget to check out Rockler’s Build page for more cabinet making tips and videos.

Learn how to build cabinet door frames using a rail and stile router bit set.
I am building a jelly cabinet, which is half of a pie safe, using red oak. I am confused as to what the gap or reveal should be between the door and frame.
