I made a small round frame (oak & paudak )for a hand held mirror… At the time I didn’t have the round mirror… Now I can’t seem to locate one… It’s 4 1/2” in diameter… Do any of my fellow LJ”s have any experiance cutting mirrors? If so would you blog me the procedure…

Thanks Ed in Port Republic NJ 08241

I go to my local glass shop and let them cut it for me. Saves a lot of time and frustration. I did a small pig mirror for my DIL of that diameter and they did a great job for a couple of bucks.

I do as Greg does. But, if you are going to do it often here’s a tool.
Here is a procedure with just a glass cutter.
