der of the molding must remain intact (untouched).
In the past three years, we've shown several variations of cutting mortise and tenon joints — especially for cabinet doors where the application is ideal. Most of the variations we've shown are rather straight-forward . . . nothing particularly fancy, just good solid joints.
But this time around, we wanted to put a little pizzazz on the door frames for three of the projects in this issue. To do that we made a molding cut on the inside edge of both the rails and stiles of the door frame. Adding this little feature isn't all that difficult, but it does require some extra hand work and careful planning.
