A rabbet for the glass is created by gluing a face onto stock sawn to shape. The process has the additional benefit of being able to choose a show face. If the show face was simply sawn, the resulting grain pattern will shift in a predictable, but likely disturbing manner. The sawn sub-rail is also stronger than would be the case if the vee was created by joining two pieces with a necessarily short tenon.
