Step 4: Take all the 2.75" wide pieces (2- 26" and 2- 20") and using the Dremel Miter Guide, cut a 45 degree angle on both ends of all strips to create the miter frame. To complete these cuts, swap out cutting wheels on your Saw-Max tool. Replace the SM500 wheel with the SM600 Wood & Plastic Flush-Cutting Wheel.
Step 1: If you are adding a frame to a mirror you already own, your dimensions may be different. The cutlist and steps are dimensions for a frame to fit around a 15" by 21" mirror. To begin, crosscut your pine plank at 52" creating two pieces. The remaining should be 20". With your plank clamped, cut along the marked line, following it at the notch at the front end of your tool. Be sure to sit the foot of the tool flush against the board
Step 6: Using the two 1.5" x 26" strips, glue and nail to each side of the frame overlapping the front of the frame by 1/4" and the back by 1/2" (see detail below). Glue and nail 2" x 23" pieces to the top and bottom evenly spacing the overhang on each side. Make sure to keep the pieces flush with the side mounted pieces on the backside.
Step 7: Next, we made cuts in our plywood material to use for the backside of the frame to create a space to secure our mirror. Remember, the width of the strips you cut can change depending on your mirror size. We put our SM500 wheel back on our Saw-Max tool and cut four 2.5" wide strips: • (2) at 20" wide for the top and bottom • (2) at 20 3/4" tall for the sides (to find the proper length for the side pieces, we measured the distance between the top and bottom strips)
