I built a bathroom frame for a mirror.
I built the frame with waterproof glue, and half lap mitered courners.

Mirror is held in place with a rabbit on the back side, and recessed plastic twist pieces.
When turned lock the mirror in place. Removal and Replacement of the mirror
was a must, This is in the kids bathroom.

I’ve never done a mirror. How is the mirror glass held in place.

A nice looking mirror Sheldon. I was going to ask if you splined it, but I saw the half lap note. The half lap gives it strength.

Did you router a groove for the mirror, or just set it in and use some attachment for the back?
