Think of the mirror as if it were a picture. Set the mirror into the rabbet, use a backing board, like foamcore or cardboard, and use points or brads to secure the mirror into the frame. You won’t need any glue at all.

The use of a backing board is important so that the silvering doesn’t get scratched.

Happy framing!!
