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

Which method makes a better cabinet door, mortise and tenon or cope and stick? That's the question that designer and builder Joseph Lanza and long-time Fine Homebuilding contributing writer Scott Gibson asked each other at the start of this video series. 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.
