My little sister is getting married this summer and the only thing that I had seen on her registry that I had a chance of being able to make was a mirror. So I decided to go for it after seeing a post from Dave Clause a fellow LumberJock. The mirror is 16” tall by 25” wide. The frame is 23” tall by 42” wide. It’s a good project to burn up those scrap pieces of wood that you can’t bare to throw in a fire place. The woods are cherry, sapele, bubinga, koa, zircote, western maple and eastern maple.

Absolutely love this! I’m sure your sister will too. Such a thoughtful wedding gift, and it will look really wonderful no matter how they decorate their house.

Very nice! I’m curious as to how you put it together. Did you glue it all together at once, or do the 4 sides separately then put them together, or some other method?

That was all scrap wood? I can’t tell the thickness. Some resemble pen blanks, it would take tons. Looks good.
