The graceful and elegant curved muntins used on Federal furniture take time to make. But when executed well, they can transform a piece. Richard Oedel has devised a method that uses a plywood template. This template guides him while cutting an assembling the ribs, attaching the muntin faces, and tying the muntins into the door frame. Follow Oedel step-by-step through the process and see if you can make your own divided-light glass doors.
