« Part 9: Drawboring Part 10 of Bathroom Vanity Mirror series no next part

It’s been quite some time since I worked on the vanity mirror but with my wife’s insistnace I finished it up this week and it is hung on the bathroom wall finally. I finished it with an oil based poly that I hand rubbed on finished with past wax. The finish came out very nice and the true test of success is that my wife has been bragging to her friends that I made it.

Nice job. I like the drawbored M/Ts… And making your own dowels with the plate was a nice touch.

I can’t tell from the photo, what did you do about the corner of the mirror that didn’t cut straight? Did you break down and get another piece of mirror?

Be Careful!

Thank you for your comments. The broken corner is up there in the top and you can see it a little in the photo. I’m still not settled on what I am going to do but it is not very noticable so it stays for now.

Mpm- If it stays for now- it stays forever. LOL But if your wife doesn’t mind the ginder, than it should suffice as is. Next project…....
