A recent bathroom remodel has left me with a 6ft x 3'6" mirror. I would like to frame the mirror and hang it in my hallway.
Today I went to Home Depot to see about getting some molding to that I could use for the frame. The stuff my wife liked was crown molding (see pic below) and wouldn't sit flush on the mirror and I can't think of any good way to make it work (also the wood seemed a little too thin where I would want to rabbit for the mirror to sit) .
My question to you:
I'm fairly handy, but new to woodworking, and I'm wondering if routing something like the pictures show above (the piece my wife likes) is over my head?
I have a router/router table, but would need to get bits for this type of project. I was wondering if these would get me something similar to what's shown above: http://www.woodline.com/p-1740-picture-frame-set.aspx
The frame would be about 4 1/2" wide and I'd probably make it about 2" deep. Roughly following something like this: http://www.pictureframes.com/html/vi...html?UW2_p.gif
I'm not too concerned about measuring, cutting, doing the joints, etc....I've just never done any decorative routing.
Is this over my head? Thoughts?
(Also, I'm hoping not to just mount this thing to the wall and then frame around it. I am wanting to frame it like a picture, making it moveable if we ever chose to relocate it).
