Made this Leopardwood and Wenge Mirror frame. When cutting the lumber for the first one I decided to cut enough for 5 frames and this is #4. After I do #5 it will be time to do something other than Leopardwood.

The finish is lacquer. I don’t like glossy finishes but I apparently mistakingly bought a can of gloss lacquer the other day. I bought five spray cans and didn’t realize only 4 were satin until after the spraying was done. I am gonna fine sand the gloss tomorrow and re spray the way I want it.

Excellent as always Greg. Are these “WhoDat mirrors” going to be Christmas presents?

That’s a very unusual frame and the wood and finish are beautiful. You did a great job on it.

Beautiful frames! The leaopard wood really shows change in grain throught the sculpted shape.
Just a thought, but it seems like the opening for the mirror should be something other than a straight sided rectangle. Like I said, it’s just a thought…

Neat design. Makes me think of a fancy lizard.
