To make a mirror, the sheet glass needs to be in your inventory, not in the bench. The temperature of the bench must be higher than 5000, or the silver powder will blow away and be lost. There doesn't seem to be any upper limit to the heat, as it works even with 5000+ temperature.
There is no visible timer on the bench while the mirror is being made, just a message in Main saying the Mirror will take 30 seconds to complete. The mirror is placed directly into your inventory when completed, you don't have to wait for the bench to cool down before taking it as with other glass items.
