In my house there's a significant morning bottle neck at the bathroom door.Too many people, not enough bathrooms.But a big part of the hold up was hair brushing and make up, tasks that only require mirror access.
After reflecting on the issue I decided to take some pressure off the bathroom by making shelved mirrors that can hang in the kids' bedrooms.Framing a mirror isn't rocket science, but I wanted to do more than make a simple frame.
I wanted a chalk-board-like ledge on the bottom, along with small shelves on each side.That makes the mirror self-contained and able to hold brushes, combs, hair gel, make up, and so on.In order to make sure the frame was plenty strong I built it more like a face frame than a picture frame, and used loose tenon joinery to reinforce the corners.
A unique approach for rabbetting meant I didn't have to go back and square the inside corners (to receive the mirror) later.You can use dimensions from my cut list, or you can create on your own.GETTING STARTED Get going by getting the stuff together.
You want to have the mirror before you cut the first stick of wood...
