Doing cabinet doors?....Of course you are, your a woodworker. Well for those biggie one you better beef it up. Let’s do alittle mitered sticking. No, that’s not one of my dance moves, that’s the term for the jointery. So lace up those fancy tappin’ shoes and let’s get to it.

So, Chopperoo, of the vid’s you posted here this is the one I’ve bookmarked.. Ya some corny and a bit funny but in the last one I said “more content” and then the humor has a place. Sure enough, more content is what you delivered. I don’t know If I’ll be in a position to one day need this much raised panel strength but If I do.. I saw it here first. Thankee. I will no longer keep clicking on your vids to just see how hokey they can be. I will be clicking them to learn something. Keep ‘em coming.

I enjoyed this video a heckofalot better then the clown nose ones I’ve seen. You actually taught something in a humourous intelligent format. I too will tune in more. Thank you.

Maybe I need to watch part 2, but I haven’t seen any evidence of a Miter. Why is it called Mitered Sticking? I understand the Stick part. Great video. Just enough interesting humor to keep the viewer from falling asleep. Not saying yours are boring, but sometimes in all the mark this, mark that, cut this, cut that, it gets a little dry. Good job.

The miter refers to the small miter created on the rails and stiles at the bottom of the mortis or tennon.

If you look closely at the samples he is waving about at the beginning of the video, between some waving around of the samples, you can see the small miters. Look at about 1:30 in part 1 and you should be able to see them.

Thanks for the update. I know it is obviously stronger, but in production, time = $. I personally haven’t had problems with my standard cope/stick doors. Anyways, interesting technique.

I have only a small sample set to compare with but I have seen evidence of racking in larger cabinet doors using only cope-and-stick construction. It all fairness, it did take about 40 years for this to happen to one door, about 22 inches wide. Happens to be the most used door in the kitchen, under the sink on the side where the trash can and towel rack live. These are custom made cherry wood cabinets installed in my parents house. Panel is “solid” (looks like two boards glued).

I’ve told my Mom we can take off the door, steam the joint or at apply a little heat from a hair drier and probably pop it the rest of the way to get some glue or epoxy in there and clamp it back square again. The wrack is only about 1/8” so I guess it hasn’t quite tripped her OCD yet. ;)
