Haunched Mortise & Tenon

In the frame and raised panel article in issue No. 140, we showed how to build a stub tenon and groove door. This is a quick, easy-to-build frame if you've got relatively small doors, like those on the bookcase. However, if the doors are fairly large (especially if the panel is glass), then you're better off with a stronger frame. And in this case, a "haunched mortise and tenon" is a good choice.
