I was commissioned to create a plaque for the local car show that will be held this weekend in Deadwood South Dakota. I printed a full color picture of the theme car for this year on the back of a mirror and made a frame out of hard maple to encase it. I used the Golden Ratio to determine the thickness of the frame, the outside of the mirror is 8 inches square and the outside of the frame is 12.94 inches.
I ripped a piece of hard maple on the table saw, put the three grooves into it using a 1/4 inch bull nose bit, I then cut two rabbits, one for the mirror and one for the backing. I cut the frame sides to length using my mitre sled on the table saw then glued it up. Once the glue set I put on a coat of walnut followed by a coat of espresso, and a thinned coat of semi gloss polyurethane.
