Topic tags/keywords: question mullions gluing

this is a continuation of this forum post

I did a search for mullions and didn’t come up with any hits. anyway, as you can see in that picture in the other thread, there is a mullion frame inside the panel. I have no issue making the mullion frame itself, its simply a few half lap joints….my question is how is the best way to attach them to the frame, I was thinking that simply butt gluing them similar to what you would do with a central stile would be OK. Since there is no profile along the inside of the frame there wouldn’t be any need to do any fancy copes or anything…I just need to just the mullions(i may not even put a profile on them), half lap them and glue them up….think that would work?

You can cut a mdf square as a spacers for how far down on the stiles and how far in on the rails you would like the mullions. Use a router with a quide bushing and a bit the width of your desired mullion. Then simply pass your router into the frame sides. The depth of the cut will determine the thickness of the mullion. Put in your mullion stock and where it overlaps, cut your half lap joint. Changing the size of the mdf square will adjust where the mullions will land inside the frame.
