This piece of wood is Locust, it was a scrap piece that was given to me. I aquire alot of my wood that way. It has such great pink and gold color. The piece of wood was fairly thin, but I thought it would be good for a live edge mirror. It had some areas that I had to fill, but I think it turned out definately one of a kind. It had a cool loop at the top for hanging, so I didn’t put a hanger on the back.
I had the mirror cut so that it covered all of the fretwork as well as the opening. The entire project is 38” x 9 1/2” x 1/2. The mirror opening is 11×6 1/2”. The mirror opening was made by following the grain, so it is not by any means symetrical. The finish is wax.
