This is my second project but the 1st one for which I started with raw wood. The first time I made my own planks is an experience I will always remember. Ripped and (power) planed to thickness.
It is quite a large mirror and is very heavy. The wood is Alder : not very known, not very used, not very resilient or noble but carves easily and just about as cheap as fir when you find a lumberyard that does sell it.
Carved patterns are based on old viking knotwork patterns.
