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.
