Mirror frame shelf

I was fortunate to be the beneficiary of a garage clean out. Harvey gave me this wonderful mirror frame along with a trunkful of old windows. I was just plain giddy! I painted the frame white and built a shelf around it. My son graciously came down and cut the backing for me. Circular saws intimidate me. I've been afraid of them my entire life. My Dad would set his circular saw in the door of the shop if he wanted to keep me out. It worked like a charm. For some reason, the radial arm saw doesn't have the same effect on me. Go figure.

I know what you mean about certain power tools. I'm the same way. Glad my DH enjoys helping me. He is so good! Going on another CC trip later with a friend. I will take her by your shop when we go.
