Showcase joints

Figure 220:1 shows the simplest form of three-way joint for glass showcase framing, in which the horizontal frame is mitre jointed together and cut away at (X) to receive the mitred vertical member (A); the joint is then strengthened with strips of fine linen canvas (B) glued into the rebates/rabbets. Constructional details of a combined dovetail and tenon joint are also given. Figures 220:2 and 3 are dovetailed together and 220:5 shows the first layout. These two members are glued together (220:6) and then mortised for the tenoned member (220:4). Both the development of light metal sections and special cements for gluing glass panels at right angles to each other have largely done away with the necessity for these wood j oints, which are now of academic interest only.
