This project was a cherry chippendale mirror frame. The finish is a clear oil and wax. I cut all of the parts on my 10” bandsaw and cleaned them up with files and drum sanders in my drill press. The frame was fitted with a piece of beveled mirror, but as you can see, I was smart enough to take the picture BEFORE the mirror was installed! Of course this project was confiscated by my wife and hangs in our entry.

A very nice piece of craftsmanship.

I’m sure it will be looked at, being a mirror, for many years.
