Build an Arched-Top Wall Mirror with Curved Drawers Photos by David Bedrosian; Illustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 4/5LENGTH/TIME - 3/5COST - 3/5SPECIAL TECHNIQUES - WORKING WITH CURVED PARTSI was able to mill the wall mirror frame pieces from a single board of 4/4 cherry.
I chose two straight-grained sections for the stiles and a section with cathedral grain for the bottom rail.For the most uniform look, a single long section of lumber should be crosscut in half to form the arch, so the grain flows between the two boards.
Mill all the boards to the same thickness, aiming for between 3/4" and 7/8" thick.Cut the stiles to the finished dimensions, but leave the bottom rail a little long for now.The 1/2" and 1/4" stock required for the drawer box can be milled from a piece of 6/4 cherry.
Leave the pieces slightly thicker than needed, and let them stabilize while you build the wall mirror frame.Start at the top of the wall mirrorThe two boards forming the arch are joined at an angle of about 147°, so set your mitre gauge to half that angle, and crosscut one end of each board.
The angle does not have to be exact...
