The method of mitreing the moulding and tenoning the stile to rail is indicated.
Fig. 173 shows the tenoning of a wide to a narrow rail when the joint is at an angle.
The illustration shows the method of tenoning the three pieces to the top rail, barefaced tenons being employed.
Next prepare the two wide and the four narrow crosspieces, tenoning them to fit the mortises already cut in the legs.
Instead of tenoning these slats make mortises large enough to receive the whole end—in other words, house the ends.
They are made partially fluid-tight by “grooving and tenoning,” and by “caulking” with oakum or similar material.
Make the doors, tenoning the rails into the stiles and grooving both to receive the mullioned framework of 3/16-in.
