I looked everywhere for a round mirror and could not find any that I liked, and if they were somewhat okay, it was at least $300. I ended up buying a 36” mirror and then cutting out the fish shape using 3/4” plywood (found a design I liked online and drew it out on butcher paper) . Routed the rabbet and opening with a router circle jig. The frame was painted with milk paint. Made this for my father-in-law!

Looks good, but i think if you used full of woods it looks more attractive.

Thank you for all the kind words! The bathroom cabinets are all in cherry (outside of the picture) so I wanted a bit of contrast painting the frame :).
