Here is my arts and crafts style mirror frame. It is quartersawn red oak with walnut inlay and accents. The inlay motif is from Glen Huey’s design, which I altered to all walnut instead of the original maple inlay. The construction is mortise and tenon with a slight setback between rails and stiles. A 3/16” thick mirror is held into a rabbit with metal mirror clips. The mirror clips are mortised into the back of the frame, which allows it to sit flush with the wall.
The mirror is screwed to the wall, and the screw holes are capped with chamfered pegs. I prefer this mounting method over hanging it with a picture wire.
Here is a link to my blog on the inlay construction
