A fairly simple mirror frame that I made for our recent bathroom remodel. The frame is made of walnut with half lap joints on the corners and a thin rabbet around the back side where I hid a strip of LEDs to give it a nice back light. I stained the walnut to try and match the wooden art piece hanging nearby that you can see in the last photo. It’s not a perfect match, but looks just fine hanging up nearby.

I actually ended up making two of these – you can see my first one in the fourth photo. I made this first one before the bathroom was complete (I think it was sapele?) and stored it in the dining room while I tore apart the bathroom. Well – turns out – the wife thought it looked great in the dining room, so I hung that one in there and had to made a second for the bathroom!

I’ve also started to post more progress videos to Youtube recently, so if you want to know more about the construction and have some time – please have a look!
