I am in the final stages of building a china cabinet. The carcass is done. The doors are in the final stages of finishing. But my question is what is the best way of holding the glass in the doors.

Tony Lonovaloff in “Designing and Building Cabinets” suggests beveled strips that stand just proud of the frame and pinned with Escutcheon pins. Charles Neal suggests glazing the glass in.

Anyone have opinions about either one of these options or other ideas.

I like the wood strips but I have pin nailer which takes the sweat out of it ( I have 3 years of bad luck left lol) I have just siliconed and used those little push in metal tabs before to or you can buy nice looking clips from wood craft or lee valley but If you just want to use one of those two I perfer the wood because you can get an exact color match easier the galze its a crap shoot
