free plans: how to make a
Wall Mirror
Basic Description Here is a free plan for a framed wall mirror that uses mortise and tenon joinery. You can use the same technique described below to display photographs or paintings. This project requires a relatively small amount of wood and with sufficient sanding and proper finishing, you can achieve a fantastic wall hanging that will make your room appear bigger and more airy.

step:       2              

Now that you have all of the tools and materials, we can jump right into the project. Let's start by preparing the wood for the frame. We started with one piece of walnut lumber and surfaced two faces and one edge (using the jointer and planer). If you are using previously surfaced lumber, you can omit this process. Rip the board to the width that you want the frame to be. Then crosscut to length. Squareness is critical here, so we recommend that you confirm that your tools and fences are square. If you have a planer you may want to send all pieces through on edge and side-by-side to guarantee that they are identical.
it is easy to create the frame pieces out of one board
