Shaped mirrors

Figure 451:1, 2 shows a wall mirror with shaped head. The frame can be band-sawn out of solid

stock, jointed together as in old examples, but a better method is to laminate as in 451:3, tenoning the various sections together as 451:4, and facing with 1/8 in (3 mm) stock to cover the laminations and form the rebate/rabbet. An alternative method for small mirrors is to build up a laminated block with the double curve cut out in one piece as 451:5. The cross-grain tenons might appear weak, for the grain directions forming the lamination are not crossed as in plywood, but in practice the glue-lines hold the fibres together and the strength is adequate...

Mirrors are usually 1/4 in (6 mm) first-quality polished plate glass silvered and protected. Frameless mirrors should have all edges ground and polished, but framed mirrors need only ground edges. Rough cut edges should not be used even in framing, for the sharp edges of the fractures will be clearly visible from the sides, and even with ground edges it is usual to matt black the frame rebates/rabbets to cut down unwanted reflections.

Framed mirrors

Frames need be of light section only, for the glass itself will keep the framework square and rigid, and the plywood back will strengthen the jointing. A typical cheval mirror glass with stand is shown in 448:1,2 with 1 in (25 mmm) by 1 in (25 mm) frame jointed as 448:9...

Bedroom furniture

Increasingly, clothes storage is being catered for either by permanent built-in units installed by the builder, or by KD linking wall units that arrive in flat boxes ready for DIY assembly. These often replace not only the traditional wardrobe but also the chest of drawers and dressing table as well. For this reason, and because the general public is less willing to spend the equivalent amount of money on bedroom furniture as they do on their sitting room, dining or kitchen requirements, bed­room furniture is an area less frequently undertaken by the craftsman. The exception to this is the chest of drawers, which can have a more general application than strictly bedroom use...
