I’m building a corner cabinet that will have a divided light door ~ 22” x 44”, with 15 separate panes of glass. Back some time ago, during the initial planning, I thought the Sommerfield Divided Light router bit set would be the best way to go. With the size of the door and its potential weight, I think a standard door construction would not be robust enough to keep such a door from racking. My thought now is to get the Freud adjustable extended tenon router bit set so I can have more gluing area and be able to peg the tenons. I’ve looked through YouTube and Google to see how you would use the Frued extended tenon frame and panel bit set and put the divided light aspect into the door frame. I see that they have a set of divided light router bits, but don’t understand how that would “marry” witht he basic frame and panel extended tenon router bit set. Has anyone used the Frued bits for this purpose? Or, are there any other suggestions? Thanks

Maybe slide the glass from the top like Rembo does.
Rembo is a fellow LJer and I got the picture from FOG (Festool Owners Group)

Easy peasy.

Have your say...
