  1. Woodturning Pocket Mirror With A CA Finish

    Today, I'm working on a piece of pocket mirror. I wanted to show you real quick how I do them. We're gonna put a CA finish on the back of it. I have here a piece of walnut which is about two inches thick. Depending on the size, you may pick based on the mirror size or adjust a little bit. I can get two or three out of it.
