It has been a long time since posting a project to LJ. I thought this one worthy of posting. Wife wanted a standing floor mirror and was using a $10 K-Mart special leaned up against the wall. I decided that I would build her something better to put that mirror in, and this happened. Wood is Chechen and maple. Frame is splined miters and base is mortise/tenon. Frame tilt is adjustable and attached with some knobs I made by redrilling/tapping some fancy drawer pulls and inserting 1/4-20 threaded stock which screw into 1/4-20 threaded inserts in the side of the frame. Finish is satin wipe on poly rubbed out with steel wool and wax to a silky smooth surface. It was good to be back in the shop and making things again.

Also I felt the need to comment to keep the dog-as-profile-picture streak alive.
