I made this mirror frame for my daughter for Christmas. Made out of cherry with Garrett Hack-inspired inlay of holly and ebony. the inlay at the bottom spells her name in Morse code. Pegged MT joinery holds the frame together. Finish is shellac and wax. the frame is approximately 34 inches high and some 20 inches wide. I was pretty happy how it turned out. thanks for looking.

Definitely a one-of-a-kind piece. I love the morse code idea. Personalized, without being super obvious. Inlay work looks sharp as well, at least from the one picture.

My only question is in regards to the bottom, right corner where the mirror meets the frame?
