  • 1800's Victorian Mirror

    This is a replica of an 1800's style Victorian Mirror/Planter that I made for the 2011 Long Island NY Woodworkers Show. It took me 2 full months to make. It's made from Walnut, Cherry, Padauk and Yellowheart. It's about 37" high by 31" wide. I used 1/4 inch bronze mirror. A beautiful project and looks incredible hanging in my livingroom. I hope you all enjoy.

    Outstanding!

    I'm a big fan of Victorian style fretwork. Where is the pattern from?

          Frank,
          Thanks for posting the picture I was going to ask your pemission to post the one I took.
          I saw this piece at our show this weekend. I have only one word "awesome". The mirrors are smokey which really adds to the vintage effect. Where did you get them? And what is even more impressive is that he has only been scrolling for a couple of years.
          Also missing is the ribbon it won. He placed a very close second which would have been first place winner in scrollwork except for a huge clock done by one of our other members. The clock kicked all our butts. I will post a picture when I get home in the events section.

              Thanks everyone for your nice comments. And thanks again Rolf. We had a very nice show this year. The mirrors are "bronze mirror." I got them from a glass place in Bayshore. I liked the look of them and thought it would go well with an antique looking piece. I thought regular mirror would cheapen the look.
