Cabinet Doors.

I looked up the other day at the faux etched glass ceiling panels in an elevator, and remembered when, years ago, I decided that it would be really nice to have a similar effect in the cabinet doors in the kitchen. So I gleaned a piece of lighting plastic at the ReStore, but it was too flimsy and broke. Then I gleaned 5 etched glass window panes, and have been saving them carefully for years, making sure they didn't get broken.
 I put them together with peg joints. The openings are the size of the glass panes.
 The rest of the scraps I ran through the table saw twice made a rabit mitered corner frame for each pane.
 However, I didn't have a miter box, so my joints are a bit uneven, so I made some filler putty with sawdust from sanding the doors and wood glue.
Vanish and assembly
Panes held in with nails... the old fashioned way. Salvaged hardware.
 Here they are!
