A walnut and curly maple picture frame I made. I got the mirror from a local glass shop’s “clearance” area for 50% off. Great deal for a beveled mirror! The design is based largely on this project by Casper.

It’s finished with two coats of my new favourite finish, Livos. I love the satin finish it gives.

I had some trouble with tearout on the curly maple on the planer (really, I should have known better and used a hand plane, but I got lazy), so that’s a lesson learned. This was also my first time doing keys in the corners of the frame. I had to turn my table saw so it was parallel to the floor joists above, so I would just barely have enough clearance to run it across the blade!

It was a fun project though, and I’m reasonably happy with the result.

Finally a project for myself! ;)

Simple but elegant mirror frame! Beautiful choice of contrasting colors of wood. It enhances the beauty of the room.

Have your say...
