Walnut Mirror Frame
This frame features a beveled profile with an inlaid bead molding. It sounds complicated, but some simple techniques make it a snap.
Large mirrors reflect a lot of light and make a room feel bigger and more welcoming. And when you put a mirror in an elegant, wide frame like the one shown here, it brings a formal look to any setting. At first glance, the frame has a simple, traditional look — a wide, beveled face, bead molding, and mitered joints. But a second look makes you wonder how it’s done. The key is to take each step in order. This gives you a square reference edge for the subsequent operations. A few easy techniques give you great-looking results.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
