I too will be making raised panel doors soon and planned on pre-finishing the panel. My question is this: do you then also pre-finish the rails and stiles and then assemble all pieces finished? I imagine you block out where glue will go for the glue up but I can’t imagine pre-finishing the panel and not the other components and then trying to finish the rest after assembly. I’d imagine the finish would make its way onto the panel and you’d have darker spots on the panel that way. Is that correct?
