This picture should help to better illustrate what I’m going for. What I meant was the tops on either side of the part that flips up are glued down and don’t move. The thickness of the top is 3/4” and the flip up section is 15” wide by 17 1/2” deep.

I like Oluf’s idea as well, if I router out a recess to help release the stress and make the top more flexible, I could just mount the mirror recessed as well. That way it’s a “design feature” rather than failure recovery. I could easily go with a 3/8 or 7/16 recess. I could use a fairly thick crossgrain piece and cut a nice profile into the side that sticks out.

This whole situation just reminds me that as a new woodworker my vision is often several steps ahead of my experience.
