Wood turned mirrors can be a wonderful household item. They can be sized for a wall hanging, a hand mirror or a pocket-sized mirror.

They can be made from a single wood or multiple woods and can be one-piece or many pieces. Your imagination can go wild here.

In this photo tutorial, William shows us how the turns but the head and the handle for this hand mirror. He uses a clever method to hold the head to the lathe for this project. It's a method that can be used for lots of different projects so it's a good one to learn.

William shows us how to make a basic mirror but then also shows us that once you know the technique, you can dress them up!

This is one project that you don't want to miss!
