The wooden shaft already had two slots. All I had to do was drill a hole perpendicular to one slot to fit the pin that would allow the mirror to pivot.

A little trimming of the cardboard was needed to make sure that the mirror could be tilted to at least 45 degrees to the shaft. Everything is held together with two-part epoxy resin.
