Gluing the back of the cabinet in. This, like every other glue-up I have ever been a part of, turned out to be a little more exciting than I would have liked.

Finishing the door. I ended up using Teak Oil ("Why not?".) I think it is basically thinned-down linseed oil, meaning the drying time is measured on a geologic scale. Frankly, I wouldn't recommend it.

Door frame, finished, with stops, mullions, and glass. Some assembly required.

Laying the glass into the rabbets in the door frame. The glass panes sit on three flats which have been milled into the top and bottom of the frame.

The stops holding the glass in have to be carefully shaped to fit around each mullion, while maintaining some pressure on the glass itself. The idea is to have everything tight enough that the glass won't rattle in the frame, but not so tight that either the frame distorts or the glass cracks.

Inserting the pins to hold the stops in place. Lesson learned: glass scratches very, very easily.
