I built this Tavern Mirror to go in my office at work.

It was a great chance to use my Beadlock jig to make the floating mortise and tenon joints. I also experimented with glass etching to add the “Anthony’s Place” on the mirror.

It is a great place to hang my jackets and everyone that comes into my office automatically check themselves out in the mirror.

That’s pretty sharp. That etching really adds to the project. I’d like to try that sometime.
Nice work

Great looking piece for your office, and great way to show of your wood working skills.

I like it. like the Rush reference also. Did you use a chemical or mechanical etch?

Thank you all for the great comments, I love the support that Lumberjocks offers from fellow woodworkers.

JM82435, I used a chemical etching, it is called Armour Etch and can be found at most hobby stores. It was my first time doing it and it was really easy, but you do need to make sure that there are no open areas where the etching material can sneak through, I got a few tiny bleed throughs but they are not very noticable unless you are right in front of it and looking closely.
