After Greene and Greene hall table I want to make G&G hall mirror. I like Darrell Pert projects and decided to make the Seattle Mirror. Size 60 “х 20”. I used sapele, ebony and wenge. Finishing Varathane Red mahagony wood stain, oil and bees wax.

Edward, that is very attractive and well done. You should add a G&G stair case to your project list. :)

Nicely done, Edward. Curious about the ebony and wenge use – mixing them for the pegs?

Fine craftsmanship Edward! Also impressive is that you got such clear reflections of other A&C style elements in the room, yet nary an errant picture of the photographer 8^)

To Mark Kornell- Pegs making from ebony, splines from wenge. Thank you Ivan. I think after a while I will make G&G staircase too. This is my hobby and I need time to this large project. Thank you everyone!

Definitely first thought the mirror was comprised of both a frame and an inset set of stairs…

@ Will, Funny you said that just now. I was thinking the same thing. But as I keep looking I realized that I was wrong.
This is a very nice looking mirror for sure!

Your mirror is so nice there is no need to have a backdrop. Your mirror speaks for it self it’s beautiful.

I liked how you took the fist photo.
If it were me I would have taken that photo exactly the same way you did. Plus…You gave me an idea. I was thinking how I could make a 3-D Shadow box with stairs in it just as seen in your photo. It’s just so interesting to look at…
