For years my wife has used a little mirror from her compact to see the back of her head while doing her hair. While pondering what to make for her this Christmas I decided she needed a mirror upgrade. I made two, one for her, and one for the wife of my glass guy who made me a dozen mirrors in trade. I made my wife’s mirror in walnut and the other in hickory. I sprayed paint on wood portion of the mirrors and then wiped it off. After the paint dried I sanded the wood and then shot them with three coats of high gloss lacquer. The mirror glass is a 5” tall by 4” wide oval.
I used my 3D pantograph at 1/2 scale for the carving of the back and recessing of the wood for the oval mirror in the front.
As always, thanks for looking!! From our house to yours, Merry Christmas!!
