Unique work of art combining mirrors and wood. I am wondering how you clipped on those mirrors on the back. My guess is it is straight edged and not following the contour of the curve. God bless,

It is amazing how such an easy project has
a much better profit margin than the complex
Robert it is 4’ x 18”
Bert, spot on the top one is a rectangle
with the corner nipped
Grizz keep your eyes peeled for a large white van. LoL

Nice Jamie! I was thinking the same as Bert; wonder how he handled the mirrors?

Ken It is square or sniped square
glaziers charge a fair bit for shapes
one thing that I do is round the edge
of the internal edge of the wood against
the mirror give a nice blend rather than a sharp

I love the natural shaped pieces. I would have never thought of a mirror seeing this piece of wood. Your vision for it is wonderful! It is a really beautiful piece! :)
