    Here is what I have done today

    I milled the rails & styles for these doors over a few evenings & assembled them today.

    These are the first doors like this I've ever made. They were milled on my Dad's shaper which I now have. These doors are for a cabinet that will go over my Dad's washer & dryer.

    I have 2 more doors to assemble.

    Looks like the ol' shaper still remembers what to do. Looking forward to seeing the completed cabinet.

    Looks really good Bart!

    How did you like using the shaper, compared to the router table?

    Cheers!

    It sure seems a lot more stable & more powerful with a true 1 1/2 hp motor.

    The frames are Alder & the panel is Birch.
