My nine month old son knocked over my wife’s old floor length mirror. So I did what we would all do. I marched out to the shop to start building a new one. Cherry rails and Poplar stiles. BLO finish.

Beautiful frame, I like it very much, especialy the detail dovetail pop out of background (they are not in same level).

Majuvla you are correct, the cherry stands proud about 1/8th.

Very unique, especially the cherry standing a tad high. Nice work!

A real winner.
Well done.

Very nice – elegant and modern at the same time. That’s an amazing dark finish on the cherry, too…does BLO do that for cherry?

I hope you made the kid help sweep up the sawdust…

M. Zimmer the boiled linseed oil does a nice job of highlighting the natural beauty of the wood without changing it much.
