Example text

Well, it’s easy to make because it requires a minimal amount of setup time regardless of the method you choose to cut the joint. It’s usually cut with a router in a table or on the table saw using a stack dado set. The ease of setup is because the same groove that’s cut to receive the panel doubles as the groove for the stub tenon. Plus, the same cutter that makes the groove can be used to form the tenon after an easy adjustment, which I’ll tell you about later. Other advantages of the stub-tenon joint include the ability – make that the requirement – to make either flat or raised frame-and-panel doors, and the relatively low cost and multipurpose use of the tooling required.

This is another place you have some built-in forgiveness for errors. If you made your door correctly, it should be 3 ⁄8" smaller than the hole in the face frame, which means you need 3 ⁄16"-thick cockbeading for the face frame. Make the cockbeading with a beading plane or router on a wide board, then rip the resulting bead free of the mother piece.
