Project Information

This is one of those tilt-able floor mirrors that once set are never again tilted. This is a copy of the standard design for the cherval mirror in an arts and craft style. The wood is a walnut board cut from a large log that my father-in-law put aside 20 years ago. Nice wood. Straight grain.

The mirror was given to my daughter, Amy to complement the dresser I made for her using some of the same log. Unfortunately, she made me stain the dresser a dark, dark walnut and as a result, the photos are very dark. Too bad because it came out pretty well when viewed in real life.

nice work. the Walnut looks good. How did you do the stripes on the mirror?

The "stripes" are an insert made like an egg crate. The wood was cut a tiny fraction larger than the opening so they fit snuggly. Will they shrink and fall out? Maybe. But my daiughter lives in Norfolk, so I doubt the air is ever dry enough to shrink wood.
