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:           4          

Next you need to make the tenons. There are many ways to accomplish this, but we prefer using a crosscut sled on the table saw and making repeated passes to complete this process. Set the table saw blade as high as the thickness of the mortise walls, and then back off a little bit. Make a test cut, flip the piece of wood over and repeat. Test this tenon in the mortise and increase the blade height until you have a snug fitting tenon. With proper planning, you can use this same setup for all four faces of the tenons.
