I followed the plans at It is cherry finished with Watco Danish oil and a few coats of satin polyurethane. My favorite part is the grain that follows the curve of the upper piece. Cutting the mirror was the least pleasant part. I can fix mistakes in wood but glass is permanent.

Nicely done. This is a popular A&C frame design, and one of my favorites. I’ve made several as mirrors and picture frames in assorted sizes. Thanks for the post.

This is a very nice mirror. Excellent build and great MT joints. If you build another, you may want to consider pegging your tenons for a little extra something. Once again, looks great. bbqKing.
