My Melted Mahognay Mirror, paying homage to Bonsoir Paris’ – Duremen Series.
Melting Mahogany Mirror. More of a test of patience than anything else. I had an old ikea wall mirror that sat leaning against my wall for 2 years, didn’t have a frame and wasn’t mounted. When I finally got around to making it’s frame, I decided it needed a little something extra.
The bottom piece of the mirror sits at a 15 degree angle, with no trim on the wall the top sits flush like it’s leaning against the wall.
The last picture is the original drawing for the frame, I used this to guide how I cut the mirror and generally to shape the wood. Using a hand held glass cutter, I scored the mirror and cracked it with a hammer. It broke in about 80% of the way I wanted, but based on how it cracked dictated how I had to adapt the wooden structure around it. This is why the final product varies from the original drawing.
