This turning was inspired by Ralph Wilkes. Made from walnut with a 6in mirror and beveled 1/2in outside. The stands base is 6in round and dished out to hold small items like ear rings ect. Mirror can pivot 360 degrees by wooden turned pins. The finished with 4 coats on lacquer then buffed. Made for my wife as a Christmas gift.

Very, very nice. I like walnut, so your choice of wood was great! Very delicate design. I’m sure your wife is very pleased.

Great looking mirror. Making something for the wife will (might) keep you out of the dog house.

See you later.
