I was wondering what I was going to do about mirrors for my new house… buy them, make them, buy cheap for now then make some nice ones in the future. I was looking online one evening and my mind was instantly made up for me, I saw “free 4’x9’ sheet of mirror” looks like I’m making frames. I picked up the mirror that evening… driving very carefully. I made four frames in total, two for the upstairs bathrooms, one for the apartment bathroom and one for the front porch, all out of scrap I had around the shop. All was going well until I started to cut the mirror, 3 out of 4 pieces came out perfect, the one for our main bathroom decided to split when I tried to crack it along the score line. I looked online again for another freebie to no avail and I was about to order a mirror to fit the frame but then my mirror prayers were answered while driving down the road on bulk garbage day… Yep, I turned into the guy taking something from the bulk garbage pile in front of your house lol. Got the mirror home, cut it to fit and presto! Free mirrors for the house!
