Episode 5: Triptych Dressing Mirror, Part 1

S2 E5 Triptych Dressing Mirror

This Edwardian style dressing mirror is an excellent opportunity to learn some highly useful milling techniques at the router table. Episode 5 covers making the frames for the mirrors and how to order the shaped mirrors from a glass supplier. The mirror frames are profiled on the front face rather than the outer edges, requiring some new skills at the router table. Templates and hand tools also see extensive use to create well-fitted miters that cannot be made using machines.

 Full plans will be available with Episode 6, but for those who want to get started early, measured drawings of the various templates are available now.

A big thanks to Infinity Tools for supplying the bits used in molding and shaping the frames!
