Mill cope and stick doors with a single cutter—just shift the profile cutter between the top and bottom of the stack.

Overview

For those who make cabinet doors only occasionally, this cutter provides an affordable, space-saving solution to routing cope and stick joints. One bit cuts both rail and stile profiles; just remove the cutters and rearrange them to go from coping rail ends to routing grooves in the stiles. Because the bit is bearing-guided, you can also rout arched rails without a template or fence. Available in Chamfer, Ogee and Classical styles (27190, 23422 and 27602, respectively). 1-5/8" diameter x 15/16" cutter height x 1/2" shank. 5/8" bearing. Groove is 3/8"D x 1/4"H.

Instructions for Routing:

  • To cut the groove and profile on the insides of the rails and stiles, run stock face down on table. Stack the bit (starting from the shank end) as follows: profile cutter, straight cutter, then bearing.
  • To cope the ends of the rails, run stock face up on table. Stack the bit (starting from the shank end) as follows: straight cutter, bearing, then profile cutter.
  • IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: Do not invert any of the cutters! Be sure the carbide is facing the right direction for the rotation of the router.

It turns out [the groove size...

Jim S from Woodstock, GA Posted March 3, 2010
It turns out [the groove size is]to be a full 1/4", meaning standard plywood panels will be too thin for the cabinet door and will rattle. Also, don't be misled by the "simply reverse the cutters" language. I wasted tons of wood doing microfits in attempts to get the rail and stile to fit exactly. It took forever and I am still not totally happy with the outcome.
