  1. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm an amateur at this, but working on a freestanding ("cheval"-style) mirror frame as a christmas gift for the girlfriend. The mirror itself will be about 2ft x 6ft (rectangular) and fully enclosed in a solid walnut frame. Given the style, the back (of course) will be visible. So, I bought...
