This is the Japanese style mirror frame. We wanted to make it as simple and minimalist as possible. This is huge, 1900 mm long. I have never had so big mirror before and I`m totally blessed.
The idea behind the design is to build without glue and screws or nails. It was a quite a challenge but we are satisfied how it turned out. The wood we used is nut tree.
The whole making process is here:

Another interesting and elegant design. I’ll have to watch the video to see how you make these pieces without glue or fasteners.

Nice video. I like how you put the dimensions on the tape of each piece, for the benefit of the viewer.
A very clever and attractive design. Well done.

Thanks for the comment.
I was wondering if someone will notice the tapes and now I know. I will keep doing that.

That’s a fine looking mirror—I like the Japanese styling and look of it!
