I made this mirror for my wife, Marilyn. It is modified from a plan I found in a woodworking magazine( I cant recall the name) It is Quarter Sawn White Oak with inlaid Maple discs and raised Walnut accents. The joints are mortise and tenon with Walnut pins that are diamond crowned on the tops.

This is made from the plan in issue #7 of Woodworking Magazine
Thanks to Olaf for helping me to give the proper credit. Great magazine!

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.
