All I had left to do was to tack the upper and lower trim pieces onto the frame … but … I procrastinated ;-)
The chuck on my drill won’t bite on a small enough diameter drill bit to predrill for a 4d nail, so I tried gingerly tapping one in. No dice. The oak wouldn’t budge. The nails did.
Not having a compressor and/or nailers … and really trying NOT to spend the $$$ ... I simply predrilled for wood screws and went for it. Nobody’s going to see ‘em, sez me.
Our Finishing Department/LOML is a bit behind, lately—having discovered that her own hobbies, apparently, are more fun than supporting mine.
But … here’s the Tall Oak Mirror …
More pics when it’s finished, and the glass and backer board are in place!
But … alas … there’s NO way I’m going to be able to avoid buying a compressor and a few air tools.
Why couldn’t I have been born rich, instead of impossibly handsome ;-)
