There are cut-to-size outsource contractors coast-to-coast in this great nation of ours.
Surely, it wouldn t be too difficult to find someone who will make panels for you.

There are shops all over the place making raised panel door blanks that are set up for just this type of thing.

Give one of these guys a call;

The OP obviously wants to get the lowest price for the bare wood blanks. A commercial contractor wants to make a profit, so would not provide the best price.

It really depends. A commercial place like that is already set up to do large volume blanks and can purchase in bulk at a better price. Many times, that would be cheaper than someone doing it out of their garage who has to buy their wood at Lowes at retail.

You took the words right outta my mouth!

The proper contractor also has specialized tools that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce this stuff extremely efficiently. Often, this ends up being a lower cost than doing it in house with less efficient means – even after you pay his profit.
