I made this mirror for my wife, Marilyn. It is modified from a plan I found in issue #7 of Woodworking Magazine It is Quarter Sawn White Oak with inlaid Maple discs and raised Walnut accents. The joints are true mortise and tenon with Walnut pins that are diamond crowned on the tops.

John, you have the eye for detail. I like this piece very much. The contrast of the Maple discs with the vertical lines routed through them is a great touch. What a great photo.

I’ve added you to my Buddies List because I don’t want to miss any of your work.
