Ah yah, this the type of mirror any respectable Maker home needs to do up, MrSuperPants writes – “Bathroom mirror made from a scrap stator ring from a jet engine. Ring is un-modified other than being laquered. Mirror is a standard plain round mirror from homebase which handily is just the right size. Mounting is by a piece of scrap aluminium on the back bolted through the original holes using surplus aircraft bolts.”Link.
