I first designed this frame as a business sign – it would go with me to shows and hang in my booth with my logo/name .
I had many request to buy it – so I finally added it to my portfolio.

The design is also on webiste at the top of each page with my name.

After the joinery tour of the Gamble house earlier this year, I appreciate your Greene projects so much more!

I really like your frame design Darrell. And I like picture # 3, I’ve never managed to take a good picture of a mirror. The reflection was never satisfactory for me. I always had something in it I didn’t want in my photo.

Randy – I never fail to be inspired when I am at the Gamble House
Darrell – the reflection has always been a prbolem for me as well – this photo was taken in front of my gargae and the reflection is of the road out front – my new photo rendering software ( photoshop elements) does a great job of blurring the mirror reflection.

wow! Very fine craftsmanship. I love the finish and edge treatments. Makes it look like it’s already been around a long time. Very fine, indeed.

So, if I were to turn that mirror over, would I see ONE rectangular piece of glass?
It seems like the glass cutters would have a hard time with those sharp inside corners at the bottom.

I love the finished color as much as I admire the craftsmanship involved. Thanks for sharing.

Great design, implementation, and finish! Really lovely piece. BTW, do you have a schedule of shows that
you’ll be attending this year? I’m on the West coast (nor Cal) and would love to see some of your work in person!

Darrel, Although I had previously commented (quite favorably) on several of your projects, I had never gone to your site. Well today that changed. I visited, looked at your portfolio and was immensly impressed. That is a fine bunch of wood crafting that you have there. I can only hope to come close to your craftsmanship in the future. TERRIFIC!!!!!
