This is a carved mirror frame for my daughter-in-law.
Hard Red Birch, 21×28
Top = Family name
Right side = maple leaves, representing Canada, with names of family members carved into them
Bottom right = My son’s motor boat with the family on board, at family cabin
Bottom left = favourite flowers from the Philippines
Centre right = coconut palms
Upper left = Sun/Stars go the Philippines flag

Fantastic work WFJ...

Must admit I like picture #3 the best… as every time I look into a mirror, all I see is a fool and may miss any fine detail!
