This is an double entry mirror that I made out of Black Ash. I have to give credit where credit is due and say thank you to the woodworker from Canada who posted a similar mirror for giving me the idea. I didn’t like the shelf that he had above the hooks so I removed it and then used hooks instead of the pegs that he had. I then placed a small top with my own routed trim underneath to give it an upgraded appearance.
The hooks were 12 bucks at one of the big stores and the trim was the first time I actually made my own after shopping and not finding anything that I could use. Now I will make my own trim from now on after seeing such good results.
I was looking at how to hang it and the only way I could be sure to make sure that coats would not pull it off the wall or stress the Kreg screws over time was to find the studs and directly fasten it to them. I then just glued buttons over the top of the countersunk screws.
The wife loves it and even my boy said he wants one for his own house. I don’t think there will be as much demand for them down south as there is up north because of the times of year that we actually wear jackets down here but I am making another one out of Oak just so I have one on hand.
Gord Graf is the wood worker who gave me the initial idea. I did modify it but he made it possible.
