I am assuming you are talking about raised panel doors? If you are I like to let the style run long, then once the door is glued and squared up I rout off the remaining stock with profile bit that I used for the out side of the door.This way you don’t have to worry about coming up short on the length of your style.I have a cross cut sled but I like to use my miter saw a lot so I cut my door stock with my Dewalt chop saw, its plenty accurate.I have the MLCS door calculating program for my computer and it works great it takes the guess work and head scratching out of door lay out and it will also do wains coating.Hope I am not insulting you woodworking skills just trying to pass on some knowledge.
