« Part 1: November 5, 2010 Part 2 of French Fry Friday series Part 3: Oak End Table »

On this French Fry Friday, I’m going to feature a mirror. This was a custom mirror order that tied into the “Cars” theme. I started with my standard 6 drawer dresser painted it red for the customer, but they needed a mirror. This is the design we came up with.. It is made from two circles slightly different sizes. The outer black (tire) and the inner red (hub). I did it that way to give it some detail and to thicken the mirror frame.

It was all built by turning my router into a compass. It took a lot of circle cutting. The inner and outer edges for each circle and then a groove for the mirror to sit. If you want to see how it is cut, here is another mirror frame being cut, actually this one is 72”. Circle Cutting

I built two at the same time. I wanted to keep the price down for the customer and since it is not much harder to build two. I did that and split the cost. The only difference in the two is the mirror built for the dresser has a flattened bottom and a support board. The other is made to hang on the wall. By the way I still have the wall hanging version here are ready to sell. That would make a great Christmas gift.
