1st Project: Hallway Notice Board with Integrated Smart Mirror
For a while I’ve wanted to make my own mirror and decided to integrate it into a hallway notice board next to the front door.
One of my aims was to try and keep the frame quite low profile, I re-purposed my old Sony Vaio laptop LCD. Set about designing and making the frame.
I decided to make the frame out of Oak.
The software side of things was nice and simple, good to learn some programming along the way to personalise. Just running a few modules at the moment. Will add some more on a timed schedule.
I like the MMM-Todoist Module, I use that to send my mirror messages from wherever I am as reminders.
Here is the finished Mirror
On the left the is the mirror. I made this myself with glass and mirror vinyl. on the right is a matt grey vinyl on glass with a metal sheet behind for use with the wooden magnets I made to match the frame. I can use liquid chalk markers for notes on the glass.
Overusing the masking tape a little.
Next job is to hang it on the wall and hide the wires powering the mirror.
Beautiful frame, well done.
Yes, nicely done.
Very nicely done!!
Wow. Excellent woodworking skills there. Good idea in both concept & execution.
Looking great! Nice work!
I like the idea that it can be finished but you can always update or tweak the software/appearance stuff remotely.
