I wanted to make some raised panels, but I didn't want to invest in a shaper and special cutters.My solution was to raise the panel with a 3/4-in., 2-flute helical end mill in my router.All that's needed is a simple jig to tilt the router base to 15¡.
I fitted a length of 15/32-in.drill rod through each of the two existing holes in my Makita router base and epoxied two outriggers to the ends.The low outrigger acts as a fence against the edge of the panel.
In the sketch above, the tongue that will fit the frame's groove has already been milled on the tablesaw, but you could just as well do this step afterward...
