Let’s start to turn the untasteful plain mirror to a family’s masterpiece. Start with measurements of its vertical and horizontal sides. To find required size of wood pieces add 1 or 2 extra inches. You need four pieces – two bigger and two shorter. It’s better to cut them using a router bit. Don’t afraid to stop sometimes during routing, especially if you do it at the first time. Control straightness of the edge. Be sure that ends of wood sit flush with frame sides.
