The first thing you need to make raised panels is a panel large enough to do the job. I generally will not use single boards wider than 8” for this so a glue up is called for. I will prep the edges of the boards that have been color/grain matched and then clamp them together, full length and lay them out with markes for biscuit slots and end cuts. Next they are glued and clamped. After the glue is cured, I rip the assembly to width at the tablesaw. I will normally make cuts on both sides and kind of sneak up on the final dimension with the final cut on each edge being about 1/8”. Then the panel is cut to length.

Nicely done Ed.

Are you going to make a series by showing the rest of the steps in creating raised panels? I am interested to see what methods you use to create your panels, as well as how they look in the end.

Bill, since I am challenged by all this electronica, probably no series here. I will get some pictures and some script into the hands of my webpage hero and perhaps he can put together a series for viewing. I have actually been giving some thought to doing that anyhow. I’ll let you know how this plays out.
