Graduation Present – FINISHED!!!

John Here:

Well it’s been a race to the finish but my daughter’s graduation present is done! I enjoyed making this for her and I hope she thinks of me when she uses it as she makes her way through college and beyond.  I think it came out pretty well and only I know where all the mistake are! (first rule of good woodworking is to cover your mistakes so that no one can easily see them!)

I was sweating it out that the mirror may not make it in one piece but they really know how to pack it for shipping.



One piece!

And it fits!


I know it may look like it doesn’t but I actually measured correctly.

Here are all the pieces waiting to be finished.  It doesn’t look like there is a lot to this but it took a while to get this far.


Once all the pieces had 4 coats of finish applied, all there was left to do was put it together.  So here it is!





Kayla, you have done nothing but make me proud ever since I first saw you at 8:02am on June 8th 1997.  I hope you like this, I loved making it for you.  Have a great graduation!

Thanks everyone for looking, let me know what you think.  See you soon…
