I for one would love to have a copy of it, but I understand your reluctance to pass your email addy around. Maybe you could open a gmail email account to use for incoming inquiries. If you post it, be sure to use dot instead of ., c o m instead of com, etc. to thwart the spammers.

you could host in on google documents and share the link they give for the document. That shouldn’t share your email address with those viewing it, and you can make it so others can view the document, but not save it. If they want, they could save it to their computer as well.

Ok, here is a link to the file that Jerry made. It can’t be used online as it doesn’t convert over, but you are able to download it to your computer to use it from there. Jerry, if at any time you update it and want me to update the version, just let me know. Thanks for sharing your work

Pawky,
I just tried your “Google link”
and got the following message:
Sorry, the page (or document) you have requested is not available.
Please check the address and try again.

Am I doing something wrong?
I really would like a copy of that spreadsheet.

That is really nice of you guys to do that. Too bad I don’t make raised panel doors. Maybe now that you have all the work done, maybe I shouid start planning something that needs them ;-)) i’m going to favorite this just in case.

Jerry & Pawky,
Thank you so much.
I really appreciate the effort that went into the creation and listing of this wonderful spreadsheet.
New kitchen cabinets are on my list. I think this will be a big help.
I have a question.
I want to make cathedral style panels for my doors.
If I use the thinnest part of the rail as my rail width, I think that that would work for defining
my panel dimensions. Do you think that that would work?
Thanks again for your effort.

Jim

I considered making a tab for arched doors but the only difference between a regular door and an arched door is the width of the upper rail…all other parts have the same dimentions. I am not an expert here by any means but it seems to me that the upper rail on arched doors is somewhere between 3 ¼ to 4 ¼ inches wide depending on the significance of the arch. I suppose it could be even wider for an even more dramatic arch.

After cutting out the arched pattern from the upper rail, the thinnest part of the upper rail should still be 2 ¼ inches wide. The panel dimensions will be the same as a regular door but you will end up with more waste cutting out the arch.

The calculator can be used for arched doors. Once you get all your dimensions… simply increase the width of the upper rail to accommodate the arch that you desire.

Looks fine but WOODSHOP CALCULATOR Cabinet Door Software, WoodshopCalc.com available for only about $25 or less (IIRC) from Rockler and most stores appears similar but far greater capabilities – double doors, project doors, , and is a full run time Windows application, seven stile patterns and more. No offense intended.

“This is very nice. If you don’t mind, I would like to customize this for inset doors as well.”

The spreadsheet is protected to prevent “accidental” corruption only. I did not use a password on purpose. Please feel free to make any changes/mods as you please.

FYI, to do inset doors, simply change the door overlaps to a negative number. For example, for an inset door with a spacing of 1//16”, change the overlaps to -1/16”.

I don’t know why but I was not getting notifications of my personal messages from Lumberjocks. And, I had not been on the Lumberjocks website for months until last week when I noticed I had 15 personal messages in my inbox and most of them were requests for a copy of my raised panel door calculator spreadsheet. I don’t know why but my PM notifications have started working again?

I sent out a copy of the RPDC to everyone that wanted one but if you didn’t get a copy and would like one send me a personal message with your e-mail address.

This very thread shows the complexities of the digital world as the combinations and permutations of where a raised panel gets housed into the rails and stiles, with added coping and limitless profiles and infinite combinations of thickness, specie of wood, renders it somewhat useless to custom woodworking and to add to that, any production shop or semi soft custom shop would spend as much time as the length of this thread into fixing what went wrong, when a pencil and paper are quicker and those who have been down this road would have already bought something like “20 20” or “Cabinetware” where its already been perfected
