Ok, so I couldn’t resist taking the stereotypical photograph of ones self in a mirror, but it was basically because any other angle just looked like it was a frame for a picture of all the junk in my garage.
Another project made from reclaimed wood, simple Lap joint construction holding a 12×12” mirror. After Glue up, I took a 1/4” rabbet bit to the bottom/back to cut out the shelf for the mirror, and backed it with a piece of MDF for added support.
It seems like I’ve been using this wood for a lot of recent project, but I love how the imperfections and scars really come through when the first coat of poly goes on. I actually found a small dead worm in the cracks of the grain (in pic 4) after the second coat… it was kinda funny.
Anyways, thanks for looking… questions/comments/suggestions welcome!
