After the wood combinations and pattern are chosen and the size of the Barris mirror frame decided, the first step is to select the wood pieces, cut them to the approximate size and then run them through a planer to the proper dimensions. Once this is done the wood strips are laminated together with the help of bar clamps.

Once the laminated strips of wood have been cut to length, they are then mitred on the corners and Mortises are routered into the mitres to hold the biscuit connectors – in other words we are building our Barris mirrors with true joinery and not using nails.

The four sides are joined together with biscuits and held in place with bar clamps until the glue dries.

Once the Barris mirror frame has been sanded smooth it is time for clear coating. It still amazes me how the wood tones really come to life after just one coat of ultra low VOC water based clear coat.

The Barris mirror frames receive 3 coats of clear coat with a sanding of 280 and then 320 between the coats. Once the finish is complete, the frame is ready for the mirror which is silicone into a routered rebate on the back of the Barris frame.
