How to Make Leaded Glass Doors
Despite the fact that one of the hallmarks of Arts & Crafts cabinetry is the use of leaded glass door panels, most woodworkers will never make the attempt to produce their own panels. If you’re like me, you probably think of the art of leaded glass as one that’s been lost to the ages–a crafting tradition from a bygone era that’s too difficult to learn the basics of in a weekend.
I am wrong.
I recently had the pleasure of watching our art director, Michael Pekovich, produce a set of leaded glass panels for his Arts & Crafts cabinet piece featured on the cover of issue 211. (He also wrote a Master Class on the same topic.) I came away with the realization that it really wasn’t that hard to do. Watch this audio slideshow and see if you don’t agree.
