This is a custom mirror frame job for a young family just outside of Cleveland. I still have yet to photoshop out the mirror.
I am very pleased with the way this thing turned out. I was worried about a lot factors. But everything went smoothly. Almost too smoothly. It must have been the hours of planing and full-scale drawings. I really enjoyed building it. The couple must have loved it too, they threw me some extra bones.
It is made of solid walnut that is attached to a 3/4 MDF sub-straight. The copper is roofing copper. $130 for a 3’x8’ sheet. It is not a solid ring though. The sculpted walnut pieces are covering the cut copper edges. The copper was heated and sprayed with a patinaing solution and then sealed. The MDF is edged with solid walnut strips around the outside and inside. The mirror was hung from the wall using a french cleat. The whole thing must have weight 50 Lbs..
Finish is a tung oil varnish mix. 48” diameter
