Wife’s been waiting two years for me to build her a couple mirrors – she came home the other day from a garage sale with some hideous monstrosity of a mirror – which I immediately took as a hint that she really really wants me to get to work! – I had admired Pintodeluxe’s mirrors & their design – so, I stole them and his inlay method), did a quick Sketchup, and headed to the shop. Wanted them to compliment the cabinets I built originally, so used Black Walnut with Oak and Ebony accents, finished with poly seimi-gloss.

I guess I got bad glass tho, it distorts the reflection and looks like some fat old man looking back at me – weird!

Great looking project—very nicely done. I’m sure it’s just a case of “imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.”

P.S. Boy, I sure know what you mean about “bad mirror glass”—they just don’t make things like they used to.

Know what you mean about the defective mirror… lately when I look in mine, I see my DAD looking back at me :-)

Did you make two of them or did you change sinks in the middle of the picture taking.

Great job.

The frame and inlay came out great. I like the addition of the shelf.
Great job overall, and a nice focal point to the bathroom.

Like it. The design and colors are a great match to the cabinets. I’m sure the wife loves it. Well done!

Very good! A wise man once told me that he lived by only 2 rules:
1) I’m a man, it’s all my fault.
2) If Momma ain’t happy, ain’t noooooobody happy.
