Mirror Frame

Wood: Ovangkol

Finish: Teak oil (with a little help from my 12 year old son).

Butt joints with loose tenons (Festool Dominos).
1/8” plywood behind mirror.
I made little plugs/clips to hold the mirror in place which were inset into the routed recessed area that the mirror sits in (5th picture). These turned out to be a great solution to the problem of holding the mirror in the frame. I wish I had thought of it before I finished the frame, I would have made all four the same size. I set the clips in place with CA glue and then drove a nail through them (better safe than sorry, don’t want seven years of bad luck).

A quick and easy project. Just wingin’ it as usual.
