Elegant Glass Doors with Steve Latta
Adding a set of glass doors to a case adds an air of sophistication that is hard to equal. Glass doors allow fine books, china, silver, keepsakes or a wide range of valuables to be safely and securely displayed. The subtle defects found in old glass, like waves and small bubbles, adds a sense of vitality and liveliness to the piece of furniture. The grill work found on breakfronts, secretaries and bookcases is much lighter and more refined than the heavy grid pattern on corner cabinets and hutches. A mere 3/8” at their widest point, these mullions are both strong and subtle in style. The manner of construction, a lower frame covered with an upper molding, lends itself to block, geometric and curved designs. Steve will go into the design and execution of these complex glass door designs while demonstrating the techniques needed to create strong but light geometric patterns.
In this class, each participant will construct a small, four panel glass door using traditional mortise and tenon joinery for the frame and an interior consisting of a two-piece grid work. Sign up today- space is limited. Tuition $275.00 plus materials
