Yes, I thought about resawing. I don’t know if my Delta 14” could handle resawing 5 or 6” white oak without ruining it. I’ve never had good luck resawing on there and don’t want to find out the hard way this wasn’t the best way!

Re: what parts require the 5/4.. The 5/4 pieces get planed down to 1 1/8” and become a frame for a mirror. The frame uses through tenons and sort of give it a beefy look & feel – and I guess it needs to be to hold a 1/4” mirror. Most of the joint lines will not be easily visible since they are along the frame edges and you’d have to be looking at either side nearly straight on to see them (top & bottom won’t be visible at all unless you’re a dog or a giant).
