This is 8’ x 4’ in total. This was fun build. I have trouble with the 45s but it came out okey.
It is Maple burl and uabinga
I finished it with clear coal.
Thanks for looking

What a huge project this must have been. It is beautiful, but where are you going to hang it? I think the 45° came out great!

Thanks for sharing

Amazingly great mirror…definitely unique. 45’ miters are enough of a rask on smaller pieces and square wood. On a large piece like this burl it seems as if you did a great job. Got a new miter saw?

Outrageously beautiful and unique! It looks like it belongs in a mansion or a massive rustic lodge – “Mirror, mirror on the wall . . . “
