Default Glassdoor cutter needed

I have a job where the client wants me to make two fairly small glass insert doors3/4" thick, about 20"wide and 56" tall, for a master closet cabinet job that I'm doing. Can somebody recommend a cutter for set of cutters to make sash or simulated true divided light with a surrounding frame.?

Here's a picture of my current progress. The doors are going to go in that slot at the middle on the end below the upper shelf. I made all the trim on site with a beading bit so beaded inset doors would be indicated.

Not exactly sure what you're looking for. If you want a glass cutter, I would just go to a glass shop and have them cut it. They've got the proper tools, and would do it right.

Sommerfeld has a set of bits for making glass doors. Set the first bit and all the rest of the set lines up automatically. I agree on having the glass cut at a shop.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thanks guys, the router bit set is what I'm after.

I want to make the doors for the closet as a warmup for the kitchen, which they want done in cherry. Up until now I have always ordered the doors from a vendor but I've found that working with the router table isn't that bad.

I think the first set that Stick shows would do the trick.

You might want to look at the Marc Sommerfeld video on the glass panel set. Very helpful, and he has some really good ways of working with a router.


I have and like this set. Comes in a nifty wooden box too.
