I am making a wall hung key rack for my wife for Christmas out of some cherry
that I was given. I plan to mount a small (4" diameter) mirror in the top
section of the plaque like slab of wood. I have routed out a shallow circle to
accommodate the mirror which came from the craft store with four little felt
pads on it.
I do not wish to remove the felt for fear of disturbing the backing on the
mirror. I have toyed with the idea of just dabbing some Titebond II on the felt
and setting the glass into the hole, or perhaps using some kind of either
building adhesive (Liquid Nails) or silicone caulk to secure it.
My concerns are:
If I use the Titebond on just the felt pads, will there be enough adhesion to
keep the mirror secure and in place when the piece is hanging on the wall?
If I use adhesive, or caulk, will it have an adverse effect on the backing?
Anybody have any thoughts on my quandary? Once I apply whatever adhesive on the
mirror or into the hole and set it into place, there will be no way to get it
out, unless, of course, it falls out all by itself, which, is what I am trying
to avoid. :-)
