Ok so I am wanting to make some panel moulding for the wainscoting in my home. It will go around the inside edges of the stiles and rails on my wainscoting and also cover the edges of the raised panels if I decide to do raised panels (versus just leaving it with the recessed panel look). My questions to you guys are where do I get the tooling for making panel moulding? I have multiple 3HP shapers and multiple router setups. I would prefer to make it on the shaper as that way I can use my power feeder. But I am open to doing it on the router table. If you guys could supply me with some info and possibly some links for purchasing this tooling that would be great.

Any woodworking supply has all the moulding cutters needed to cut any profile both with shaper cutters or router bits. FYI: For an 8’ ceiling, the wainscoting should be no higher than 32” above the floor.

Thanks for the reply. I am not understand how to find these types of cutters. I have searched but only came up with crown moulding, astrigal, chair rail, picture frame ect. ect. Nothing for panel moulding. Would there be any need for a rabbit on the back of the panel moulding?

All depends on what your looking for. Pick what you like then look for the cutters to make it.

Ok well let’s take for example the profile on the top row fourth from the left on the link you posted. I like that one. How do I find the cutters for that profile? I have searched and searched for panel moulding cutters and can’t find any.

Where do you get your cutters now? They should be able to direct you.

Hi Sweet tea, not sure what you have for tooling but I would seriously consider a euroblock that allows you to change the knives for whatever profile you want, without having to buy a new head. Even better, Whitehill makes one that also contains straight carbide knives so it can work as a rebate block as well. They’re very cost effective as once you own the head, the additional profiles are cheap.

I own one if you have any questions.

That profile is available from CMT, amana, Dimar ect… in a 40mm pin knife.

Or preferably if you have a moulder there are a bunch of sources, but it’s a stock w&h knife.

Have your say...
