Video Series: Cabinet-Door Shoot Out

The mortise-and-tenon joints in one cabinet door or the cope-and-stick joints in the other door? Watch this video series to learn how to build each type of cabinet door, and decide which one works best for you.

Length: 0:37
Produced By: Gary Junken and Rob Wotzak

The two craftsmen had some pretty strong opinions about the answer before they began their door build, but would seeing each of the methods through from start to finish cause a change of heart? Watch and find out.
