Project: February 2007
The client asked for a mirror in the wooden frame for the hallway. I suggested several options, one of which he really liked. The frame dimensions are 1250 × 630 mm. Material – an oak board. The shape and dimensions of the mirror frame are related to the location of the frame.
Previously, the customer purchased a small wooden curb in the hallway of an unusual shape.
The frame should be located above the curbstone at a short distance. The same distance is maintained between the frame and the corners of the wall (inside and outside).
The right figured side of the wooden frame resembles the shape of the side of the curbstone. The curbstone has carved decorative elements, then their presence on the frame will only emphasize the connection.

Beautiful mirror. Thanks for the extra photos of the process. They really make it clear that nothing about this mirror was simple. Well done.

Beautiful mirror. Very unique design and fantastic craftsmanship. How many pieces did you have to cut the dowel in to get the curve you wanted?

Thank you all!
I made some original frames for mirrors. A little later I will prepare a photo and a story.

The curved insert is made of a solid rail. Before gluing, I warmed it up.
