This is a small hand mirror (5” glass) that I made for our daughter for Christmas. It’s bead-blasted Brazilian Cherry. The templates were made out of hardboard (round outline) and acrylic sheet (the “M”). Basically cut the outer profile, sand the blank, stick the templates to it, and blast away!!

Two things I might do differently next time ‘round. First, I’d finish the blank before I stuck the templates to it. I used double-sided carpet tape and it had a tendency to leave a little adhesive behind. It came off OK with acetone but, in a softer grained wood, it would probably take the fibers rather than leave the glue. Second, bead-blast a little deeper. That, however, is a matter of personal preference.
