Wall-Hanging Mirror

Wall-hanging mirror, beveled glass. Made from mahogany, redwood burl veneer on quartered poplar (for stability in movement). Constructed with offset should mortise and tenon with an additional rabbet. Top is a triple tenon. I made my own shaper knives to cut the top molding. Everything is hand-carved. The rosettes are carved then inlayed into the piece for the contrast. The columns and capitals are made from a single split turning. Was carved then split.
Finished with shellac, danish oil, and wax.

See more work at my website and my blog.

You obviously have the skills to do great things including developing your own voice, your style. I hope carving is a part of that.
