Cope, Stick and Tenon Entry Doors?

Help! I'm making 2-1/4" thick frame and panel entry doors with cope, stick and tenon joinery.  Can I use the new Amana cope bit #47511 and the matching ogee bit#54131 that Amana recommends for 1-3/4" thick doors?

Seems to me that I could, with the difference being a wider tenon and wider groove. In this case up to 1/2" wider it seems. I'm having difficulty determining if there are limitations imposed by the bits, your insight will be greatly appreciated!

Yes, you can use the bits on 2-1/4" thick stock. As you have already mentioned, the tenon and panel groove will be 1" instead of 1/2" wide. To fill the panel groove, you can sandwich two panels back-to-back with 1/2" plywood in between.
