This is one of my largest mirrors measuring 47" by 18 ¼".
I wanted to build a mirror that could be accented by the background of the wall behind it, so I came up with this slotted design. English Chestnut stain combined with a simple look makes this a stand out piece.
Check out the flecking. This is typical of the wood I use in all of my work. I buy all of my wood from Vetsch's Hardwoods. One of the best hardwood dealers in southern MN.
As usual I use traditional methods of the early craftsman from the turn of the century to glue up the frame. Mortise and tenons join the pieces together. To best understand mortise and tenon, take a look at the unstained photos. A rock solid glue joint that will never separate, ever.
Again, as with all my mirrors, this mirror can be customized to your specifications.
