While making this mirror to kill time i was inspired to make the wacked out mahogany mirror you may have seen in my projects. It’s very simple, but i didnt have much of this beautiful cherry and i couldn’t throw it away.

This is a nice looking mirror. How wide is your frame? Is the finish a wipe on poly?

Wonderful project. Cherry is my favorite wood with which to work.

It’s amazing how sometimes the best way to show off beautiful wood like this is by making something simple like this mirror. Sometimes I think I over-design when it is unnecessary. Well done.

-- Happy woodworking!

That is spectacular. It’s one of those projects that you see where the wood itself is the star. Nice job.

Wow! I LOVE the wood! Is that a veneer, or is it solid?
