Dimar Divided Light Door Bits

Frame and panel doors are usually made with five parts: the frame, two rails and two stiles. When you’re making larger doors, or ornate smaller doors, it’s common to divide the panel into more than one piece for aesthetical or practical reasons. This makes the machining process more difficult. Dimar has made our lives a bit easier by introducing a new router bit set, the strength of which is making frame and panel doors with multiple panels. The set comes with three different edge profile options and a cutter for machining the groove for the wood or glass panel to be housed in. All of these bits will need to be used in a router table to keep the operations safe, simple and accurate. The set will make frames between ⅝" and 1" thick and panel thickness (or at least tongue thickness) can range from 2mm to 6mm.
