Made with African Mahogany I made these 3 1/2 inch Pocket Mirrors for stocking stuffers last Christmas. As well as other gifts that I need to post.

I started by cutting the African Mahogany down to 4” x 1/2” pieces. Then using a 3 1/4” Forstner bit I drilled a 3/8” hole for the mirror. Then using the center hole made by the Forstner bit I centered them on my wood lathe and turned them. Then sanded, put on a finish and glued the mirrors in.

Took less then a day to make 14 of them, minus the drying time for the finish and glue.

I’m a little behind on posting projects that I’ve done. So you’ll be seeing more from me in the next few days.
