Just a simple frame for a mirror my wife wanted to go above the hutch in our dining room…it’s still the rain season so the wood hasn’t had much chance for UV exposure but I’m hoping it darkens up a bit over the summer. Enjoy.

I think UV rays still make it through the clouds.

Nice looking mirror.

magic Debbie magic. No routed a channel for the mirror to fit into then I placed the mirror, and brad nailed some thing strips on the back, leveled it with the frame using a hand plane and it was done.
