Tall Oak Mirror

Tall Oak Mirror

(c) 2007 Chris Baylor licensed to About.com, Inc.
Every dressing room or bedroom should have a full-length mirror. A large, elegant mirror is not only functional, but adds a lot to the look of the room.

In this set of free woodworking plans, we take you step-by-step through the process of building a tall oak mirror. This is a relatively simple project to build, but one that gives a lot of satisfaction when completed.

To finish this tall oak mirror, we're going to use nothing more than a few coats of shellac. The shellac finish provides a protective sealant and finish to the wood, and really brings out the beauty of the oak.
