    Doing that on a single head flat bed CNC just isn't very efficient.
    Not saying you can't, but the logistics aren't worth it IMHO.
    Picking up a 3 headed shaper table would be an up-front expense that would pay for itself in production speed very quickly.
    For ordering out I dealt with Custom Doors and Drawers in Ontario for years and they were high quality, fair priced, and on time:

    For my own touch often I would outsource frames only and do my own panels and applied moldings using materials and/or designs that are not available.

    It's kind of like using a screwdriver as a hammer. You can make it happen if you just want to, but it's not the best tool for the job.

    Screwdrivers aren't hammers?
