A Christmas present for the wife. OK, it’s a little late. In my defense it has been cold here this winter and my shop is not heated. She had seen a similar one a while back and said she would like one. This is my attempt at recreating it. Box is Ash, stand and face frame are Walnut. Interior is flocked. Had an interesting time trying to cut the mirror. Luckily could only find one considerably oversized so I had some extra to mess up on.

Very Nice, Dave! I’d better hide this from the wife or she’ll want one, too! :)
As flatrock said “serious brownie points”!

Great work! I know what you mean about glass cutting. It was my least favorite part about making my mantel clock.
