Walnut mirror

Just an update on a pice I made several years ago. I finally got a mirror for this frame, and I must say it looks great. The main wood is walnut. With sappy bubinga inlays bordered with curly maple. If anyone is interested I got the mirror from Doulles glas in Virginia. Its 24,3/4” it had to be custom cut, with a 1” bevel for $120. by far the best price i could find anywhere. Hope you all enjoy, thanks.

Very nice. The frame deserved the beveled mirror.

Great craftsmanship and definitely pretty. Bevel mirrors are expensive. We’re building a mirror frame now with a 50 handcarved tulip swag hanging over the top valance. The beveled mirror is 32 inches wide and 72 inches high, The cost of the beveled mirror is $800.00 is what the lady told us.
And we sure going to let mirror people install it and help us put the frame to the wall.
