pic edge (or several edges) in a length of scrap. You'll need to use these extra profiles to set up the tablesaw for mitering the sticking.
Next, I cut the panel grooves in the frame members. Groove depth is usually equal to sticking width, except when the sticking is very narrow and more depth is needed to hold the panel securely. When the groove depth exceeds the sticking width, you'll need to stop the stile grooves at the mortises. Otherwise, the grooves will show at the ends of the stiles. You can cut the grooves on the shaper or router table with a slotting cutter. On the rails, since the ends will not show, you can mill the grooves along the entire length.
Profile work. Bird runs a stile through the shaper to mill the quirk-and-bead sticking profile.
