they are of
interest to me. I'm currently a student taking woodworking in college.
I would love to offer my knowledge as best I can. so if you have any
questions feel free to ask. I have about one years experience in
so far and I know that doesn't seem like a lot but I've learned so
talk to you later
Have you ever made any rail and stile cabinet doors with glass as the
panel, and fake muntins, creating a divided light look? How might you
attach the pane to the doors for easy replacement when and if they
break? Thanks. Tom
just 'til the glue dries... :)
For the situation you describe, yes. One would presume that the number
of times one will need to replace a pane would be limited so that
removing brads will be a relatively rare occerrence.

use a small
quarter mould to hold the glass, fastened w/ brads.
And now I'm thinking real muntins would be easier,
too...Jeeminy, these small f^*&!#& pieces will never work! Thanks,
I hear ya', brother... :)
Good luck, I think it well may be easier and it'll definitely look
BTW, make a piece wide enough for four muntins (including waste) and cut
to length. Make end cope cuts first, then mould the outside edges. Now
rip the two outer ones off and mould the final edge. Repeat as many
times as needed...
You have one year in woodworking and you are here to offer your knowledge to
us?! I have done woodworking for thirty years and still don't have the balls
to make that offer!
I think you need to sit back read the group and relax, some of the old
timers around here may teach you a thing or two. Share what you can, but the
combined knowledge here is mind boggling!
For example check this site out!
Thanks! I missed them the first time down the isle! I expected to see them
hanging slightly lower than waist high, wasn't looking up there!
Now that I have my own set of balls, any wood dorking questions I can
answer? Tom P? Anybody?
If you really want to grant yourself some kind of authority on the basis of
balls, you need to get a pair of bull balls!!
These are the balls of real men!
(Or at least, their trucks!)
It's entirely possible that someone who's been 'dorking for a year
would have learned something I don't know.
OTOH, if the OP wants to be a regular on the wreck this is a perfect
trial by fire.

Sr. Mary Benzedrine, Saint Agnes School, Grade Five. c. 1960.
Seriously though, I remember when I first discovered that I had a 'new
member' and sought to show it off in roughly the same way.
BTW - A survey was done of this NG awhile back and found that the
average age was in the fifties and the average number of years
experience in wooddorking was about twenty something, if I recall
Good luck with your new member! <g>

Dave, do you remember the link to that survey?
I'll admit to its lack of empirical credentials but it was sorta

My bestest teacher ever was Miss Hankins, Trinity Cathedral School,
Grade Two, Little Rock, AR, ca. 1960. It was my only year of religious
school and I don't recall if she was a Sister or not. I just loved
her. (Oh, right. She couldn't have been a nun, huh? ;)
Chaos, panic, and disorder--my work here is done.

Perhaps you can help me. Bronzzy. I've been trying to get my 1950 cast
iron Henweigh aligned. I really like it, but it's not cutting
right. I've adjusted it as best I could, but it's still off.
