This is a Walnut Mirror with beveled glass and pewter beading for one of my best customers who moved to Colorado.
She saw this in a catalog made overseas from “walnut like finish” and wanted one from solid walnut. It was hard to see from the picture if the taper on the wood was going in or out. I finally determined that is was going in and then I could make the frame. The timing of adding the beading had to carefully thought out so it could be finished out side the frame and then added and mitered to spit one of the barrels on the bead.
