One thing I have learned about taking pictures of a mirror frame is to leave the mirror glass out for the photos.
This frame is made of spalted oak and finished with boiled linseed oil and wax.

Very nice, Did it take a lot of hours to smooth out the surface? I have a hard time smoothing out my flat projects. Looking at this project and all your boxes, they look so rippled but yet so smooth. Great job

Richard, It is definitely time consuming and takes alot of sanding…but I like the look.
degoose, I already am in a striaght jacket..They just let me out to go in my workshop.
Dennis, now that is an idea..A steam powered grinder…Have to put on my thinking straight jacket to figure out a design for that one.

I love the look of this- all that texture. Do you do this with a grinder? dremel tool?

hello rivergirl, I use a grinder, a foredom electric carver and alot of hand sanding. I guess a dremel would do the same as the foredom…I just happen to have the foredom

OK, I just have to add this to my favorites and buy one of those grinders to get the birdie off my back and build one of these. I scored some spalted wood that is at the mill now. This would be perfect use for some of those natural edge cut offs.
