I made this wall mirror for my mother as a Christmas present. I started planing some (assumed) chestnut boards I had aquired off a barn remod several years ago. After the first pass over the longer pieces you see as the stiles I noticed that they were wormy hemlock, in addition after a few more passes I noticed something even more important; I missed a nail in the hemlock. My infinity Dewalt 735 knives have new notches to show for it. I finished it with a coat of tung oil and two coats of wipe on oil based poly.
