Hi,

My brother in law gave us a mirror he was throwing away that was his moms. When I saw the mirror I said that I will take it. It’s 50 year old leaded thick mirror glass.

The mirror is 28×18.

The frame is 3 inches. I cut the wood so the grain from the live edge matches the bottom frame.

The pictures do not show the coolness of the grain. It is very heavy!

Thanks

Sweet…

Good save on the old mirror glass.

Excellent use of nice wood for the frame.

Keep up the good work.

Be Careful!

I am kind of tired of the live edge craze. But your use of it is creative and what live edge should be about. Nice job.
