hit it with a mallet before you glue it down. it's really unpredictable though, it took me about 5 sheets of mirror before i got something half decent so i recommend having some spares!

That a lot of wood routed out so it shouldn't be too heavy.

Are you going to bind it?

I meant the edges on the back really, they're not very rounded.

i'm not rounding them but i have sanded them down and now they're just like your average les paul.

its not too heavy actually and as phill said theres a lot of wood routed...

i'm not sure about binding... it seems quite hard... i've heard that it stops the moisture from getting under the mirror but then i've seen loads of MoCs without binding
