I think Sommerfeld has a video of his glass door set, which is likely the same. Here it is in two parts.


Part two

Part three

I like the way he does his videos, usually straight forward with no cuts. I have this in the DVD version and it is all one video.

Thanks for the links. Just finished watching all three videos and learned much more than I was looking for. Actually, like his method for retaining glass panels better than I had seen before and using the three-piece set appears to be no more difficult that the stacked set I have. And the tips he provided regarding use of jigs makes so much sense. I may actually ditch my two-piece stacked set and go with his method since I'm looking to make numerous glass panel doors.
Yeah, he really is a master of the router. One hint that made a difference for me was to drop a half unch grommet (not an O ring) into the collet, so all the bits in the set bottom exactly the same. His bit set is great. I got old and will probably be selling that set since I'm not making doors like that anymore. They are beautiful in a tool-like way.

I'm no longer doing much woodworking, so if you want to buy my Sommerfeld Glass Door set, let me know. Will sell it for about half the cost of new. They are in new condition, with the box. Just got too old and health issues. Sommerfeld bits are as good as they get.
