My parents have finally gotten to the point in their lives where they can afford nice things, and not have to worry about us kids breaking them as soon as they arrive at the house. Last year they treated themselves to a much deserved cherry bedroom set. My mom thought it would be a great idea if I made a mirror to match my dad’s dresser, which didn’t come with one. As chance would have it, I had just seen the Woodworks episode in which David Marks makes a circular mirror with keystones, and thought it was the perfect fit. His mirror used wenge for the keystones, which I changed to mahogany and stained a deep red to match the jewelry box I’d given my mom a few years prior (posted in my projects). The two look pretty good together. Thanks David.

I watched that show with David Marks, and it was quite a project. Looks like you nailed it perfectly, nice job!

The wood combination looks great. Coincidentally, I’ve been waiting for an excuse to make the same mirror.
