I had some heavy oak pallet wood sitting in my garage, not the top slats but the middle 3 pieces that the boards get nailed to. When my wife would straighten her hair, she would bring this huge mirror in the living room and prop it up so she could straighten her hair and watch tv. So, she asked me to make her something considerably smaller and more convenient for this exact purpose. I milled that wood down trying to keep the nail holes to show some of its history of what it was before being re purposed for another use. Nothing really fancy here, just some angles cut at the table saw and the stand is made with half lap joints (a first for me). I also glued some slip resistant material to the bottom and sealed it with several coats of spray polyurethane.
