       Fresh out of the vacuum press and ready for trimming and soaking off the tape.
Now I have to join and tape up the Elm burr veneer ready for gluing and pressing.

         I’ve trimmed off the excess veneer and soaked the veneer tape, then I gave it a quick sand to smooth  off  the veneer before routering a shallow rebate to take the walnut feather banding.
               I had to soak the banding in hot water to soften the glue so that I could separate the two halves in order to bend it around the sharp curves at the ends of the ellipse. I then bent and fitted the banding in place, then glued taped and cramped it.
The finished article.

        Now I have routered on the moulding  using a  couple  of  bearing
guided round over cutters and sanded it up. I then turned over the mirror frame and routered the rebates for the mirror and the back  using an arbor with a bearing guided winged cutter and a trimmer cutter.

             I’m now steam bending a beading roughly to shape over my kettle. This is to fit in the rebate in the rear of the frame to hold the back in.
