I am going to be laying over an extra layer of wood onto the frame after its been template machined out. But the inner edges ( in red) must follow the lines of the frames themselfs and must be cubic and straight. The rest of the waste wood will be trimmed off by the frame itself when I machine it. These lines are IMPORANT.!!

The box or over lays, these bits which are now sticking out - are then routered back, by using the wood as the template. The cutter will trim back the wood and make it look solid when finished.

Holes have been strategically drilled - allowing easy to jig saw out. The space around the template is quiet liberal, >> This time its about speed not accuracy..!!

From the design sketch I had to scale it up to the sizes we had suggested it would be from on our website. From the enlarged photocopy, meant I could grid up the designs and so transfer all the details onto the card so I could make a template. This template will help me when I start to make and bring this project to life..!

I drilled holes at the corners and tips of the cubic details, this will help me saw out the frame a lot quicker and reduce breakage or splicing damage of the template.

These jigs or router templates will allow me to re-produce the edges and connection lines needed to help me to connect them onto the main frame when its been sawn then machined to the main template.

The template will need to be taped down and then traced around. I got my strips there too - these will become the boxes and also the jigs I'll need to help me make this modern mirror.

The red parts drawn onto the jigs are to remind me that they are important and must accurately match and marry up with the frame box lines. These templates mean I can make more of these and now quicker.

With the template pinned on top, I can now router the waste wood away and be left with an identical model - only thicker. The wood under - is the actual mirror frame, or part of it..!

These are what I call Mirror Moulds - or templates. These jigs allow me to machine out the back of the mirror. The place that gets machined away - is the space where the mirrors will sit in the back.
