    1st you need a matched set of router bits to make the styles & rails for the door (the door frame)
    Then a bit to make the raised panel , center of the door. I have a vertical raised panel bit, dry assemble frame & measure for the raised panel:

    Raised panel for the door: Glue some boards together, cut to size & rout the raised panel profile on the door.
    I use the vertical bit since I have a only a 2-1/4 hp router. (But can get horizontal bits to do various profiles.)

    Assemble & glue corners of the frame & one side of the raised panel. Clamp corners.

    You definitely want that panel to 'float' in the frame to allow for expansion & contraction during changes in the seasons/humidity.

    Excellent work as always Dave! I admire that bench every time you post a pic.>>

    Good point because this will be going into a cabin that does not get 365 day conditioning. In the winter it will go cold-hot-cold-hot.

    Old raised panel doors in houses,cabinets,hutches etc (my old house still has 8-9) always left panel unglued for seasonal changes.The wood need to 'breathe'.

    I put some glue on one side & pull it into the grove.
    Here it's so dry in the winter they rattle :)
    Have though about using some clear silicone but never tried it.

    Also important to coat both side the same, front got 4 coats & the back got 4 coats.
    That way one side don't move more than the other & bow.

    Absolutely. You definitely want equal mumber of coats.Outside stuff like decks,certain furniture I dont worry about.Inside things are a different matter.
