Here are photos of my newest mirror frame. It’s one of those “I wanna make something but not sure what to make” projects. A friend gave me a mirror and realizing that I don’t have a good place to store glass I decided to go ahead and make a frame for it. It’s around 54 1/2” x 19 1/2” in size. It’s made from four species of wood. Starting from the center of the frame is yellow pine, redwood, and then red oak with a strip of ipe inlayed down the center.
From a design perspective I generally like the less is more approach. But….did you ever just want to play with your cutters and tools and just pyle on the elements a little because you wanted to see what would happen? Well that’s what happened to me here. Besides, I don’t have to worry about selling the piece, my daughter has already seen it and told me where in her room I’m to hang it. Thanks for taking a look.
