Modern Woodworking Project #8: Full-Length Mirror and Stand

03-22-2022 04:33 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’m building a modern full-length mirror reminiscent of the mid-century dressing mirrors. This mirror incorporates a storage drawer and the mirror pivots so you can adjust its position. I used some fun woodworking techniques like rounded miters, stopped dados, and a bunch of other woodworking tricks to achieve the waterfall grain pattern I was looking for. Watch the Video Here Enjoy the build!

Small mirror for my morning shaving (blog)

04-27-2021 11:33 AM by mafe | 9 comments »

Mirror, mirror on the allotment…small mirror for my morning shaving. Here just a little project of joy.I like to do my shavings outside in the sun, no not wood shavings now, here we are talking the beard. When shaving last summer, I were just guessing the first period, no mirror just a shave, but… Even though I have been shaving for app forty years now, I still need a mirror, to see if I have been all over and to cut the edges sharp after.So every day, for the rest of the summer, ...

Handy tools #3: Mirror for cutting dovetails

03-04-2018 10:44 AM by Dave Polaschek | 13 comments »

As I attempt to get better at dovetails, one of the things that frustrated me was that I was continually cutting the back side either too low or too high. If I stop cutting to look around the back, I’ve changed my position, and it takes me a stroke or two to get everything lined up again and that can cause troubles. So I got a great little tool for $6 at the drug store. A folding stand mirror I can set up behind the dovetail I’m cutting so I can see the back side of the cut without changin...

Easy DIY Mirror Frame

05-25-2017 12:12 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Our mirror was very plain and boring to look at. It also looks makes the entire room look bland. Framing in the mirror really spruced up the room and was a very simple and quick project. Check out how I did this weekend project. Stop by my channel and subscribe for more content.

Mirror Frame #1: Grooves and Tongues...

08-21-2016 06:37 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Finally, I am getting around to making this matching mirror frame for Kayln’s bedroom. This frame matches the eight drawer dresser and the two nightstands I made for her this past year and this last Spring. This frame, like the other pieces, are made from primarily hard maple and accents with cherry hardwood. Yesterday I milled the lumber and ripped them to length and widths. Today I finished cutting the grooves and then began cutting the tongues that will fit into those groove...

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...

Guarino Videos #2: Sydney Mirror

08-11-2015 08:47 PM by GlenGuarino | 0 comments »

I am working on this for a gift for our granddaughter. The design may change a bit. I want the design to have gentle curves that will create dramatic shadows to provide interest as your eye moves around the mirror. In the second video I am working on the top part of the mirror. I’m tossing around ideas in my head of which wood to use, maybe some of the rescued mahogany, shedua or walnut. Sydney Part 1 https://youtu.be/wtXfl5eHGlE Sydney Part 2 https://youtu.be/4NCQjfWLk_I

Thanks Mr Karson!!!

So I was one of the winners on the HomeRefurbers site in the “Mirror Mirror Challenge” with a “Non-Mirrored” medicine cabinet entrée. But best of all Karson offered to donate one of his beautiful boxes for the winners. And now 1 year later, TADA, here is the box. Personally signed by Karson.
