Introduction: Arts & Crafts Glass-Front Cabinet

Mike Pekovich gives an overview of what's in store for the Arts & Crafts Glass-Front Cabinet video series. From the through-mortise-and-tenons to the leaded-glass panel there's lots to explore in this technique-packed Video Workshop.

Episode 1: Case Parts and Mortises

Proper lumber selection is key for a perfect cabinet. Learn how to select the right lumber for an authentic Arts and Crafts look. Plus, lessons on how to cut blowout-free mortises.

Episode 2: Tenons and Cross-Member Pieces

Learn how to tackle the cabinet’s beautiful through-tenons with simple tricks on getting tight-fitting joints.
