Mirror frame from purpleheart – used mirror from an old hall stand, I am currently working on a sideboard to go under the mirror. Used mortise and tennon joints, decided to pin them with some old cut? nails.

the mirror is beautiful and it going to be even more stunning with a sideboard underneath.

I love the subtleness of this piece Marge. A little bit of pizzazz from the wood choice and leading added. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Marge, this is really beautiful work. I do have a question…how do you finish your purple heart and keep it purple. Mine tends to go brown after a little while.
