Okay, not 100% wood, but… This mirror frame is made from poplar (cut and milled by me also), with mitered corners joined with biscuits and painted. Had originally intended to add some decorative molding in a 1/8×3/4” dado around the edge, but we didn’t like the look and at the last minute switched to a decidedly modern look. Found some 3/4” aluminum bar stock at Home Depot that would fit in the dado exactly. I cut the miters in an old plastic miter box with a hand-saw intended for wood. But it cut the aluminum just fine and doesn’t appear worse for wear. Then we just hand sanded the aluminum with 150 grit to give it a “brushed nickel” look to match the hardware in the bathroom.

The mirror glass was one one of those huge sheet mirrors that builders put in bath rooms to make them look bigger. It’s 1/4” thick so I had a glass shop cut it into two identical mirrors at a cost of $20. Frankly, I think the frame makes the room look bigger than the huge sheet mirror did.
