I made two matching frames to dress up the mirrors in our master bath. I chose western red cedar to keep them as light as possible since the mirrors are quite heavy. The moulding pattern was created using a combination of the two bits in the final picture. Each miter was strengthened with two Dominos. I also used Dominos to secure the mirrors into the frames – rectangular recesses were routed around the rabbet to accommodate the Dominos which were then screwed in place overlapping the mirrors. Overall a simple project, but I did learn that my old Craftsman miter saw detents are not accurate which makes lining up 4 miter joints loads of fun. That thing really needs to die.

Nice work! You really find out how accurate the saw is when doing frames… Maybe Santa could bring you a late Christmas gift? Im sure he meant to drop off a Kapex or something but left it at the north pole by mistake haha
