Dressing Mirror stand replacement.

Daughter-in-Law had this old dressing mirror and stand from her Mother.   The mirror and frame were in good shape but the stand was trash.  She ask if I could make a new one for her, of course how do you not.      
Cherry for all the wood parts,  including the plugs to hide the screws on the of the base.     Base pieces 3/4 in thickness uprights 1 1/2' x 1 1/4'  as per the original.   Turned the top adornment on the Mini Lathe,,  used a 3/8" dowel to connect.    
Old base parts were some kind of fiber material,  coming apart,  looked like it had been painted at least twice once brown and one white.  Uprights were wood of unkown type.

Nice repair job Ron! Can't believe they would make something like that from a termite barf wood product.

End results confirmed by the clear systainer reflection!
Nicely done!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Nice work Ron. Those bottom pieces would of been a good time to practice some sliding dovetails. 
well done ron.

Nice touch of the turnings on top of the stand, 987...

Hope she volunteered to paint/stain.  Making would be a pleasure, paint/stain is a pain.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

 Nice design and execution on this, I like the top turnings, nice touch to enhance the appearance. 
thanks for the comments.   She is doing her own stain and finish.   She does art painting and has painted rooms in their home.    The old stand had turnings on the top, mine our simpler,  I think a bit more pleasing.   
Thanks again for the comments.

Nice to save the mirror.  Looks great.
The base looks nice! I like the little detail on top of the posts and I think that gives a new life to the old mirror instead of just extending the life of the old mirror:)

Nice save Ron, looks great.
