(HIGH POINT, NC) – Freud America, Inc. raises the bar in frame and panel door construction with the introduction of their new Premier Adjustable Rail & Stile system. Freud’s new, patented system allows woodworkers to build any style of cabinet door in a range of door thicknesses and sizes! This extremely easy-to-use solution provides unlimited creative freedom, and solves the long-standing limitations of existing frame and panel door construction.

Traditional rail and stile sets are all about limitation. They only work with ¾” material thickness. They only allow basic stub tenon joinery that limits the door’s size and joint strength. There is no ability to adjust the groove to fit undersized plywood panels, and different sets are required to produce glass panels.

Freud’s one-of-a-kind solution allows you to create extended tenons for extra door joint strength, adjust groove width for different panel thicknesses (7/32” to 3/8”), choose from a variety of material thicknesses (5/8” to 1-1/4”), as well as add-on optional cutters to your bits to create glass panel doors and double-sided profile doors.

“Until now, options have been very limited for cabinet doors,” states Russell Kohl, President and CEO of Freud America. “With our new solution, woodworkers have the ability to build any style of cabinet door in a range of door thicknesses and sizes. Imagine all the possibilities... now with one basic 2 piece router bit set and some optional add-on cutters, woodworkers can create any type of door including raised panel, entertainment center, pantry, glass, screen, double-sided profile, and more. Truly, the options are endless.”

Unleash Your Creativity with This New System:
* Extra Door Strength – Extended tenon capability allows for increased door joint strength
* Variety of Door Thicknesses – Choose from a variety of thicknesses (5/8” to 1-1/4”)
* Adjustable Groove Thickness – No more rattling plywood panels! Adjust the thickness of the groove to allow for a snug fit with plywood panels. (7/32” to 3/8”)
* Unlimited Options – Glass panel doors, double-sided profile doors, screen windows, storm doors, raised panel doors…

Freud’s Premier Adjustable Rail & Stile System Feature:
? Exclusive TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide - designed and manufactured by Freud specifically for each cutting application to maximize cutting life and material finish in a variety of materials.
? Patented Extended Tenon Capability – is created when the top portion of cutter, including bearing and spindle, is removed to produce the front of the extended tenon.
? Adjustable Shims – enable both a tight fit when using plywood panels and the ability to use thick panels (7/32” to 3/8”).
? Perma-SHIELD® Permanent Non-Stick Coating - reduces friction and resin adhesion while preventing corrosion for longer life and cleaner cuts.
? Unique Cutter Geometry – eliminates tearout and creates a flawless finish.
? Tri-Metal Brazing - consisting of copper sandwiched between two layers of silver alloy to create a stronger, more impact-resistant bond between the carbide and the bit.
