With this book of patterns and instructions, woodworkers can recreate the antique look of period mirrors with all the conveniences of modern tools and ready-to-use patterns. Eighteen mirror patterns are included, copied directly from the original antiques dating from 1730 to 1885. Beginning with simple frame construction and moving on to more complex designs, this book takes woodworkers step-by-step through every part of the process to ensure woodworking success. Designs range from a Chippendale mirror in birds-eye maple to Queen Anne and Victorian mirrors. The five major styles of mirrors and frames explored are a simple mirror or picture frame without scrolls, a simple mirror with scroll at the top only, a simple mirror with scroll at the top and bottom, a mirror with scroll at the top and sides, and a mirror with scroll at the top, bottom and sides.
