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,

Thanks everyone

It is amazing how such an easy project has

a much better profit margin than the complex

ones.

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

edge

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! :)
