Fastening Glass into Cabinet Doors
Also, the doors are arched top, but the back pocket for the glass was cut out square at the top. This would normally be good, but I'm using beveled glass, so the glass needs to have the same shape as the opening. Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with the top retainer? Right now I have six doors like this for a project, and I just want to figure out the best way to use them.
From contributor J:
I use 1/4" quarter round, and if I don't nail, I will glue the stops in with clear silicone.
From contributor D:
I went to my tool shop to buy a Senco micro pinner, but I ended up going with a Grex pinner instead, and it’s worked great.
From contributor H:
Why use any stops at all? GE II Silicone is the way to go. If you are decent with a caulking gun, you can lay down a 3/16 bead that looks pretty good. The glass will not rattle as with wood stops, and it also adds the feature of keeping the glass in place if it accidentally breaks.
