Most of these hand-held mirrors are made of scrap wood. I don’t believe in wasting anything. I even have saw dust from each species of wood that I have and use it if needed. The various types of wood I used for these morrirs include purple heart, oak, maple, walnut, cherry, paduak, ebony, poplar, bloodwood, leopard wood, etc. None of these mirrors are stained in any color. These are the nagtural wood tones. I use spray lacquer as a finish. The designs are my own. With 4 grandaughters, you never have too many mirros. In some, I inlaid the initials of my grandaughters. These are great gifts.

What a great variety of designs. I have been asked for mirrors at the last few craft shows. I have a few started, but now I am back to teaching. You have given me new inspiration to finish them. Thanks for posting. robert

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
