Mirror with compartments
Made for our young grandson. Small mirror (12" x 12") framed with four small compartments. Little places for him to store his little treasures.
Simple butt joint construction using thin dowels, hidden with plugs I made of the same oak.
The doorknobs are black walnut cubes, also attached with thin dowels (bamboo skewers).
Used the router to recess the mirror before attaching the back.
1/8" panel was used for the back.
Finished with brushed lacquer but honestly hated working with it. I found it hard to get a good finish because it dried too quickly.
Finish: Lacquer (thinned)
