Built this little thing quickly, as a challenge to myself. My neighbor showed me something similar he bought at a craft store for $60. Made this in two days just for fun. Got the glass in bulk from a flea market, and the mirror came from goodwill. All for under 4$. The maple I had left over.

Turned out pretty nice and my neighbor was impressed. Used a keyhole router bit for the hanging slot on the back. Got the eagle from eBay. Bulk purchase of old steel eagles I painted gold. Couple bucks each.

Feel free to copy or improve. Shout out to my wood kinfolk. Hope 2017 brings you many inspired projects.
