Just a simple mirror and coat rack made from oak. I had a bevel put on the glass, this sure is a nice way to dress up a simple project. The design was modified from a Woodsmith magazine project #133. It see’s a lot of use being located by the back door. I added a side image of the trim since I was asked how it did it. Measurement of the glass 10” x 36”, overall size 17” x 43” approx.

Looks great. How did you do that “built up” crown/capitol for the top? It doesn’t look like normal molding, so was it done on your router? I like the look, and would like to do something similar….

Also, where did you get the glass? My wife wants me to do a full length mirror, but I don’t know where to start looking for glass/mirrors or what is important.

Wow. What a cool project. It turned out really nice. Could you provide overall dimensions? I’m trying to get a sense of scale and develop a cut list. Also, nice crappie on your profile pic.

Hi GS, saw your mirror project on the rotator when I went to the LJ website. It caught my eye. The details are sweet, and appreciate the plans with it. Nice work!

I thumbed through your other projects and favor the corner curio too. I’m looking to build one some day and will definately mark yours in my favorites.

Great projects, and thanks for sharing!
