  14. You just put the oil on the start of your cutting area? Not at all the cutting line?

  15. Any chance on a video or even a picture for framing the mirror, showing how the mirror is adhered to the frame. I have a huge full length mirror I want to move from my closet to a narrow bathroom wall, so now I know at least how to cut it. Thanks for the cutting video! This is a project I am very interested in doing 🙂
