Glass Doors Made Easy
You can do it all on the tablesaw
Glass doors are great for kitchen cabinets, display cabinets, enclosed bookshelves, and any other project where you want the objects inside to be seen. But conventional construction methods are tedious: Make a regular mortise-and-tenon door, rout stopped rabbets to hold the glass, square the corners, etc. Doug Stowe has a better way. He makes his glass doors with a bridle joint and a tenoning jig at the tablesaw, and his trick for shortening the tenon cheek on the back face of the rails allows him to cut through-rabbets for the glass at the same time. It saves steps and makes everything come together squarely and perfectly every time.
