There can be several things you are doing wrong. First make sure your router bits are sharp. Also you may be feeding the wood through the bit too fast this will affect the finished cut.Just try on some scrap to change feed speeds until you get it right because if you feed to slow then you may get burning.Also a feather board might help if you have one. It will keep the wood firm against the bit and stop chattering as the wood passes over the bit. I am assuming you are using a router table?? If not you should be as these bits are designed to be used on a router table.

A door fell off of our wardrobe while carrying it into the house, ripping most of the small screws from the hinges and splitting the stile at all three hinge sites moderately. Any advise. Thanks

Open the cracks up and insert wood glue. Then clamp them up for 24 hours. Best advice then is to move the hinges a few inches and refix them.

Hello, my name is Lawrence K. I bought a Skil rail & stile router bit set.My question to anyone who may be familiar with this product is do you separate the rail & stile bit to do each...

If you are referring to the 91704 set, the bit remains together and you raise or lower it to make the various cuts.

not exactly the same, but this article I wrote for Woodworker's Journal in 2009 should help:

Replacing door knob need short backset

There are locks with short backsets, but Kwikset doesn't make them. If your door has such a narrow stile that you cannot put a household duty lock into it, you are probably not interested in security, so anything you can find will do the job. Look online for locks for French windows or patio doors.

If you are interested in security, then check out Adams Rite locks, which are used in narrow stile aluminum storefront doors, but they also make some for wood doors.

If you are replacing a very old lock and your style is big enough for a 2-3/8" backset lock, then do it right and treat it like a new installation. Use a jig that can hold the hole saw in the right place, use a router to cut away trim that will get in the way of the lock, and install a modern lockset.

What are the different types of cabinet doors?

wikipedia provides a good explanation, quoted below:
. In the U.S. solid wood frame and panel construction, using either mortise and tenon or cope and stick jointed frames, is traditional, with maple, cherry, oak, birch, and hickory among the most commonly used species. Mortise-and-tenon frames, with their greater strength and permanence, are more costly to produce and less commonly used as compared to cope-and-stick frames. As an alternative, miter joint frames, which may be identifiable by face-surface relief that follows continuously around the frame, have become popular. Miter-jointed frames typically employ embedded metal fasteners to secure frames elements (stiles and rails) cut at a 45 angle. Captured within frames, panels may be either solid or veneered engineered wood (either particle board or medium density fiberboard). Laminates, including those designed to resemble hardwood, can typically be identified by a more rounded appearance associated with the minimum bending radii necessarily entailed by the manufacturing process of applying laminate to an underlying substrate. By comparison, solid surfaces, and solid hardwoods in particular, can be milled with more sharply defined corners, edges, or grooves on either a panel or frame.
  • Panels. Panels used in frame-and-panel kitchen cabinet doors may be fashioned either of solid wood or covered by paint, veneer, or laminate in which case they are fashioned of engineered wood. The panels are typically not fastened with glue or nails but rather "float" within the frame to accommodate seasonal expansion or contraction of the wood frame.
  • Solid-door construction. Doors may be fabricated of solid material, either engineered wood (particle board or medium-density fiberboard, but not typically plywood) or solid wood. Engineered wood panels may either be used as slabs or may be shaped to resemble frame-and-panel construction. In either case, engineered wood panels are generally painted, veneered, or laminated. Solid wood panels are typically formed of multiple boards of the selected wood species, jointed together using glue and may either be painted or finished. Solid wood construction offers the possibility of refinishing in case of damage or wear.
  • Decorative panels. Cabinet doors panels can be used decoratively on cabinet sides, where exposed, for a more finished appearance.
  • Glass door construction options. Doors may have glass windows constructed of muntins and mullions holding glass panels (as in exterior windows). Other designs either mimic the divided-light look of muntins and mullions with overlays, or may dispense with them altogether. Cabinets using glass doors sometimes use glass shelves and interior lighting from the top of a cabinet. A glass shelf allows light to reach throughout a cabinet. For a special display effect, the interior rear of a cabinet may be covered with a mirrors to further distribute light.

How do I adjust for a lighter garage door?

Sounds like you now have a very dangerous situation. The door is now lighter but it also less rigid, causing it to bind in the rails and deform them. The flexing of the door must be addressed. That said, the adjustment you need for a lighter door is found in the large torsion springs above the door . But these springs are VERY POWERFUL and can be LETHAL! If you had to ask this question, you are not qualified to attempt this adjustment, and to do so will risk SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH. PLEASE call a qualified garage door service company!
