Cabinet doors

I'm looking for light cherry cabinet door for the galley sink. My doors were broken before I bought coach. Someone did a backyard repair. They did a bad glue repair job. That will eventually come a part. So does any one know where I can buy the doors. Or purchased the router bits that would fit the profiles of the doors,

Check with a couple of local cabinet shops. Any good cabinet maker should be able to match design, color, etc. with no problem and you will likely get a much higher quality finish than something mass produced.

Sometimes glue fails in raised panel doors because the panel is to tight and swells. they may be very fixable.


If you go the router bits route here is some info. Don't try doors unless you have a router table; IMO

MLCS Router Bits and Woodworking Products

https://www.routerbits.com Whiteside makes a great router bit available here or through Rockler;

And the other comments are setting you straight. A good cabinet shop can bang out a few doors for you. You may not like the price; it hurts to be pretty.

I would also suggest looking at Rockler for the rail and stile router bits, as well as the edge router bits. They have several to choose from. As the above poster suggested, a router table is a must.

Rails and stiles are relatively easy to build with the right equipment. I have made many myself. But the raised panels are more difficult, requiring large router bits that might be more than the average router can safely handle. If you can reuse your existing raised panels, the job would be much easier.

Bottom line is if you have decent woodworking skills and the equipment, you can do it. If not, there are lots of cabinet places to go to have it done, with a small sized box of $20 bills.

Rockler was also very helpful in helping me match my wood finish. I have the Tuscan maple in my coach, so I can't help you there.

Very good information here: if you have a smaller amp router in a table then you need to make many passes with a raised panel bit to make the doors taking a small bite at a time; like eating an elephant.

Finishing to match may be the most difficult thing to do actually. but a small variance would not be noticeable as a matter of fact if you really examine the wood work in your MH you will see variances that exist now
in all likelihood.

Good luck on your search or your project which ever it turns out to be.

I have a kitchen full of homemade cabinets that proves that even if you finish each piece exactly the same, each piece of wood will have its own subtle characteristics.

If somebody points out the imperfections in your work, throw them out of your coach! Nobody is allowed in my kitchen with a level or a tape measure!!

As far as color, the cherry wood in most of our Alpine Coaches is a natural wood that gets its color with age and requires no staining. Once lacquered it will begin to darken ,and in a few months will match the rest of your cabinets. I have added cabinets and made tables for our coach and they look the same as the cabinets that came with the coach. The cabinet doors in our coach are pretty standard and should be easy to match the rails and stiles.

Jim is right, If someone doesn't like you cabinets, throw them out. Good Luck.
