My neighbour was asked to make a frame for a client’s mirror. He subbed the job to me due to time restrictions so I actually got paid for this. It’s very hard to photograph a mirror, well for me anyway, sorry for the quality.
I have no idea what kind of wood this is. It was given to me by another neighbour and was once his built in Entertainment cabinet. It had a strange plastic-y film that looked like oak but it is most definitely not oak.
The finish is linseed oil.
Through tenons and a rabbet in the back for the glass, there is a 4mm hardboard back screwed on. In case they ever want to take the mirror out.
A simple design for a very busy mirror.
