These hand mirrors were made from repurposed kitchen cabinet doors. When they were first fashioned they reminded me of Lollipops. The doors came from a Craig’s List “Free” post and damaged doors from a local cabinet company. The wood is Beech (body) and Cherry (ring around mirror). The letter inlay is a thin veneered brown wood from a door panel. This is my first time doing inlay, that was an experience. The letter templates were made from letters purchased at Hobby Lobby. The finishing method was taken from LJ “Kelby” in his post (#7) in the thread titled “What is Danish oil?”. The last picture is the “Mirror Glue” that was used to attach the mirrors, 4 recessed holes were made with a forstner bit for better adhesion.
Thank you for viewing.
