I posted the frame before. Here is the completed mirror.
Fan is for visual interest. heehee


The inset 1/4” ply adds more protection than Kraft paper, no?

Nice job Gene. I like a mirror with a good propeller. :-)

Thanks Paul.
The three of them are all bundled up for the trip to IL.
Though, I guess I could’ve allowed them to fly there.

Thanks eddy.
I was just moving around to keep my ugly mug out of the picture.
By getting the fan in there though, I did obscure the “antique” mirror. If you look close or enlarge it, you can make it out. It sorta looks like the ceiling has a poor paint job. I’m no photographer, for sure.

Really nice, Gene. Wonder what it’d look like with an oil burning lamp in the cradle?
