Like the design of the mirror but don't have room for the full-length version? Well, here's a scaled-down model that you can hang anywhere. It would look great above a mantle or dresser, or on its own in a hallway.
I used the same construction techniques that I described earlier for the larger version. Only the size of the individual pieces needs to change.
The mortise and tenon joinery remains the best choice for the frame, because the mirror assembly still needs the support of a strong joint.
If you attach hangers to the mirror, be sure to fasten them to the stiles rather than the top rail, as shown below. This way, you'll be assured that the weight is distributed evenly on the frame.
