New to this site & forum. I am interested in building an interior door to replace an existing hollow core, standard size (32x80x1-3/8). This will have a full length single light narrow fluted reed glass, so basically the wood will be the frame only to place the glass. Reviewing some articles here I see a variety of joinery used - dowel, loose tenon, and tenon. Not much on placing the glass. Given the area is Central CA, I figure poplar will do - easy to machine and stable, and takes paint well - and reasonably priced (more so than mahogany or pine - and I will not use fir).
Any thoughts on joinery and/or glass placement would be appreciated, including pointing me to any visual design articles/books - I am more of a visual learner than by reading or listening.
