This mirror was made to fufill a brief we were given, to design a mirror that was not your typical mitred frame. So I designed a mirror that has two wall hung pieces and the mirror is suspended inbetween them.
The primary wood is Tasmanian Mrytle. The two outer pieces are just two pieces that are dovetailed together at 90 degrees. Then they are mounted to the wall and left to hang at whatever angle they fall. Each of the face boards came from the same piece of wood. I resawed a 50mm piece, so that I could bookmatch the 2 pieces, or in other words I wanted them to be mirror images of each other. Also I have done a pixelated inlay on each of these face boards. They are also mirror images of each other. The inlay is with Jarrah.
The mirror hangs from a rounded piece of Mrytle that sits in one of three possible spots. Then there are 2 brass rods that attach the mirror to the round piece.
It is finish with 4 coats of Ardvos plant based wood oil and a good coat of wax.
