Topic tags/keywords: cheval mirror

I’m thinking of trying to build a Cheval (?) Mirror to go with the blanket chest I built. This seems like a relatively simple project, but I’m not sure where to go for the hardware. Does anyone here have any ideas?

Also, I’m planning to use a pretty cheap mirror I picked up for about $20. It is about 14” by 48”. Do you forsee any problems with this? I’m thinking if it doesn’t stand the test of time, it would be easy to swap out, but I’d love to hear others thoughts. The hardware is my number one concern right now. Thanks!

Nice traditional style…

Additional styles…

Yup, that pretty much sums it up for me…my first go-to for hardware and the small tools is Lee Valley/Veritas.

Doh! I went to order and the $5 part will cost $7 in shipping. That seems a bit excessive. I’m going to hold off for a little while in case I need anything else in the future and can combine things into one order, but I don’t want to spend money just to “save” money. I checked woodcraft, but they don’t appear to carry this part. Oh well.

Have them send you the woodworking and hardware catalogues (gardening too, if you wish). I’m sure you can find a few things to fill out your order… ;^D

Thanks Doug. I hope you never meet my wife. She might harm you after this suggestion. Hah.

Have your say...
