Barred Glass Doors

Traditional barred doors are illustrated in 229:1-3 and rely for their appeal on the delicacy of their treatment. Contemporary examples sometimes apply a cut-out pattern or jointed face mouldings to a single sheet of glass with Araldite or Durofix cement, but apart from the sham element the glass cannot be replaced without sacrificing the mouldings, and in the best examples the sash-bars are composed of a face moulding and a separate stiffening rib grooved in to form rebates/rabbets for the glass which is beaded or puttied in (229:4, 5, 6). These face mouldings must be of the same shape and section as the moulded edge of the stiles and rails or the mitres will not meet. Various methods of jointing the ribs are practised: veneer keyed with a dovetail joint for curved sections (229:7); straight mortise and tenon (229:8); angle joint in which the third rib is forked over the other two (229:9); two curved

ribs spliced together and slotted into the upright (229:10); and a simple halving joint for crossovers (229:11). The mitred junctions of the face mouldings are shown in 229:12-15.
