Good Lookin Project

dered quarter-round edge along the entire perimeter of the frame, moving the router in a counter-clockwise rotation.

Then I cut a '/»"-deep by %"-wide rabbet on the inside of the frame for the mirror. Here I used a rabbet bit with pilot, moving the router in a clockwise rotation.

FINISHING. 1 finished this frame to match the Curio Cabinet (Min ivax Walnut stain and Hope's Tung Oil Varnish), Then I cut a piece of Vb" Masonite for a backing piece for the mirror.

MIRROR. The easiest way to cut the mirror is to have someone else do it. I took the frame to a local store and asked them to cut a mirror to fit. I also left the Masonite backing with them, and they kindly installed the mirror and backing piece in the frame. When I got it back, I screwed two round-head screws in the back and ran picture-frame wire between them to hang the mirror.
