Post: RE: Dovetail Router Bit Quandary

I only know of two 1:6 dovetail cutters. One has a 28mm cutting diameter, 50mm cutting depth. The other, 15mm dia. and 27mm depth. Would either of those work?

If you can share some dimensions I could model it for you to give you an idea of what you'd need. I've done it for a ramp inside the garage in the house we are just buying.

I would leave the rails and stiles as they are. I might consider adding vertical strips on the panel like he did on this wall cabinet (https://flic.kr/p/2mjwjkW) and others.
