Cope and stick construction is a frame and panel technique often used in the making of doors, wainscoting, and other decorative features for cabinets, furniture, and homes.

In cope and stick construction all the members of the frame are given a decorative profile on the edge to be jointed to the panel, and the horizontal members are also given what is known as a cope cut across the end grain of the wood.
