In that case, you'll need needle-nosed pliers or a "beater" chisel to dig out the brads or glue. Next, use a rabbeting bit to remove the back lip of the panel groove (Photo 2). Bring the frames to your local hardware store and have glass cut to fit. Make retainer strips out of the same wood as the door. Finish the strips and the newly machined rabbet to match the door, because they will be visible through the glass. Finally, install the glass (Photo 3). Now your plain old kitchen uppers are elegant display cabinets
