Default Modified mirror frames

Hi, colleagues.
One of those Easter days I took a mirror whose wooden frame I made several years ago at my beginnings as a woodworker and decide to improve it.
The first picture shows the original wooden frame with some aluminum corners. I dismantled the frame and then two 12mm thick plywood slats, with different width were laminated to get a rabbet to hold the mirror.
In my miter saw I cut the four sides of the new frame then I glued them and wait for a glue to dry. Some edge banding was necessary to enhance the plywood edges. Finally, two coats of nitro primer to get a smooth finish.
It was so easy so a second and bigger mirror was also modified. Here are some pictures.

I like the second one a lot more. Good job.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Hi Alexis,the first one looks almost the same as the frame my grandson made for my wife & I
which has a photo of our 3 great grandchildren. The second one is also nice but I prefer the first.As Mr. Theo said "Good Job"

That’s a big improvement. You have a great talent for refurbishing

I don't know anything about CNC router tables , but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night
