I’m think this is my first attemt with live wood, I think they calll it that. It was gonna go in the fire, but look what we did instead. My husband ripped it for me and I did the rest. I realyl like it. It’s not scrap until it’s preety much gone. Am I right? I see a piece of wood and it’s gonna be something, someday.

Good looking mirror frame. When I first looked at your photo I thought it was door trim going into your bathroom. Possibly another idea?

No router bit or shaper could make a frame with that classic look.

Very Nice.

Very nice. Love the live edge on that cedar. Perfect rustic style mirror.

So much better than use it as firewood. Thank you for sharing your beautyful idea with us!

Stop me from finding little projects to do. It never ends. This was one piece of wood. I’m always pulling something out of the burn pile. In fact, I have a few more I pulled out and forgot to bring them home. I guess I’ll get them next weekend.

I see a piece of wood and it’s gonna be something, someday.

This is why my scrap pile keeps growing. I just have a hard time throwing any piece of wood away! Projects like this don’t help – I just thought of some pieces I’ve been saving that frame the door in the garage like this.

Nice job!
