| Print this plan

Havent had time to list all the steps yet.

This mirror is a PB knock off in which I attempted with out being fully comfortable with using my newly purchased router and table. I actually was doubtful how it would come out with all the detail paint and work it seemed that it would require but after looking how much the retail prices where, I jumped end with both feet and ended with this finished product. To my amazement, it was a hit with everyone! (What would one Poppy do for his first grandchild,and a boy at that).

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
