Two-Drawer Dressing Mirror

To build the dressing mirror on page 6, you’ll need a mirror with an arched top. (Ours was 1/4"-thick with a 1"-wide bevel.) I purchased this from a glass shop after building the frame. (I even brought in the hardboard backer board that was made to fit the rabbet.)

In addition to the mirror, you’ll need a pair of mirror swivel hinges, two 3/4"-dia. porcelain knobs, brass turnbuttons, 3/4"-dia. felt dots, and a handful of woodscrews. Similar swivel hinges and porcelain knobs are available from the mail order sources.
