In this lesson we'll add a hanger to the back, bevel the edges of the board and wax the carving.
I've chosen to fix the mirror into the recess with 2-part epoxy-resin glue. Just 3 blobs of this glue placed as a broad triangle on the bare wood will keep the mirror in place and allow for movement; and you can easily extract the mirror and replace it should the mirror ever get broken.
I hope you've enjoyed this project and have a go. Perhaps more interestingly, I'd like to see this leaf design, which is really quite old, adapted to other shapes and projects. Let's see them in the Members Gallery!
