Very simple design!
I was going to call this a Greene & Greene style mirror since the Greenes did:
A. Use wood
B. Use square plugs
C. Use curves
but that was still really stretching it 8^)
The mirror is a 12”x12” tile from Lowes, the frame is white oak with a Watco finish (medium walnut).
These tiles are under $2 each. You can also get the same tiles with beveled edges, but be ware that they are not all truly square.
I used a half lap joint for the corners and a handy hinge morticing bit with a template on the router table to cut the rabbets (mirror and backer panel).
The plugs are ebony, made with the traditional wrist destroying sandpaper technique.
Thanks for looking!
