Hi everyone. I’m thinking of making a double sided wooden magnifying mirror (actuly 2 for the grand daughters) and was hopping someone had all ready done it and had some advice for me.
I’m thinking round or oval. Not sure how to put the 2 halfs together.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

If I were to attempt this, I would sandwich the two sides together with double sided tape,shape and cut the hole for the GD’s to look at themselves, split the handles back apart and router dado inside of one handle side to hold the mirror and sandwich that with the second side. I am sure there are more ways to do this and many will be complicated.
