I built two of these mission style mirrors. One is for my wife, and the other is for close friends that are moving across the country. All of the joints are mortise and tenon, with the sides to top being thru tenons. The wood is quartersawn white oak. Definitely my toughest project so far. For the finish, I used Jeff Jewitt’s recipes for Stickley Fayetteville (on the left, for my wife) and Stickley Centennial (on the right, for our friends). They’re pretty good sized, with the picture frames at the bottom for 4×6 photos. I designed this primarily for our friends, as she is amazing photographer. My wife’s became a nice Easter surprise.
