This WWGOA GOLD LIVE event is all about the router table, cope and stile joints. George Vondriska used a two-piece rail and stile set and shop-made coping sled, while sharing lots of door making secrets along the way, to help you produce perfect cope and stile joints for your next door project.
THIS EVENT IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR WWGOA GOLD AND PLATINUM MEMBERS

Many years ago, I saw George make doors showing the router bits to get a good joint for the styles and rails and the panel that fits into the door. I would like to see this again, Please.

RE: Door dimensions – the height of the door would seem to be easy on the stiles, but how do you figure the length of the rails for the width?
The formula for rails is: Width of door – width of two stiles + length of two tongues
Are there different size router sets? For instance, thinner for framing thin pictures.
Yep, but sets are thickness specific. When you buy the bits make sure they’re correct for the thickness of material you’ll be working with.
This set, for example, will work in material as thin as 7/16″ http://amzn.to/2zEmSPT
Your push block works great for short pieces, but won’t work well for pieces which extend beyond the table. ???
It works fine. Just remember to keep the pressure horizontal, not vertical.
Can you use these router bits and these techniques on thicker stock, say for an interior bedroom door?
Nope, it wouldn’t work. The bits I used here work in material up to 7/8″ thick or so. For interior or exterior doors you need a set like this http://amzn.to/2zrDR79
Watching From Tulsa! There’s all kinds of door cutting bit styles available. Generally speaking is it usually necessary to be using two router bits?
I like two piece sets over reversible bits (single piece set)
Could you put a feather board in the miter slot to push it through?
In the past, you’ve always been using a Jessem router lift. It appears you now have a new table with a Woodpecker router lift. Is there a reason for the new table and lift?
A 1.5 HP, 10 amp, router will do the work
I’ve still got a JessEm table and lift, but am working with the Woodpeckers table as a different brand for my students to see. I’m also working on a router table class, in which students will build a cabinet, that we’ll use the Woodpeckers top and fence for.
How much horsepower do you need in your router for this type of work?
A 1.5, 10 amp, machine will do the work.
Where in Wisconsin are you?
I connected, watched the countdown timer to 8:00 p.m. and only see a message on the screen “Waiting for WoodWorkers Guild of America” ???????????????
Sorry. We had some audio issues that caused a late start.
Has the video started yet? I’m not getting anything.
Has something happened? It’s almost 6:05 PT.
Just a few technical difficulties but we’ll be with you in no time! – SRK
Is this the right place for the router table class?
Yes, but there appears to be a problem. 🙁
There was a problem. George should be here shortly.
Do they make set up blocks for this type of operation?
would like to join in
