Well this is a couple of Mirror Frames in Wyche Elm with some burl
These have become a regular seller and I think you will find a ready
market for this type of item and you get top dollar for them no problem
at all. If I can help anyone with these just ask.
The most difficult part is doing the double rabbit for the mirror and the
backing plate. I’ve come up with a simple offset jig that has made things
a lot easier. It may be worth noting that all the wood for these come from
the firewood pile in most timber yards.
Starting prices go from £150 – £275 or $225 – $395 (don’t hold me to the right
They do take a good hour to sand and I dry sand to 320 grit They are then finished with
my sloppy finish, it gets in deep and with a final wet 320 grit
oil sanding gives them real depth you can also do the oil sanding with 0000
steel wool, but that can get a bit tricky on the Burl.
