Standing Mirror

The front of this floor-standing mirror opens to reveal storage compartments for jewelry, scarves, or other accessories. And the mirror tilts for the optimum viewing angle.

At first, glance this project appears to be an ordinary dressing mirror. Yes, it’s a little smaller than other mirrors in its category. But if you loosen the hand-made cherry knobs on the sides, you can position the mirror for a perfect view of your attire. That’s when you’ll notice that the front is actually a door. A door that opens to reveal a case that holds all of the accessories required for a night on the town. And when the evening is done, no more draping items on the mirror because they have no home. As for the construction, the mirrored door is a sturdy frame built with open mortise and tenon joinery (also known as a bridle joint). The case has splined miters and a back that’s rabbeted in the frame. The stand features graceful legs that are solidly joined to the feet. The thick feet are good looking and a strong foundation for the mirror.
