This my latest mirror. I made this for a client and thought to share with you. It is 1200×800 mm in size. The timber is recycled Balayon and was originally from 115×70 mm stock. The wave is hand carved. The finish is three coats of oil followed by three coats of wax. Sorry about picture quality, point and shoot cameras are not as good as I would like them to be. I will post two more designs latter this week.

Hi George, that is really great mirror. The hand carved wave is great and the wood is beautiful. Was it shaped with a grinder, rasp, gouges or all of the above?

Hi Peter

Used all the above and lots of sandpaper as well. But mainly the Abortech disc.
