A few years ago, we inherited a large mirror from our neighbor.  It had a small chip on one side, but the price was right (free).  At the time I was taking a woodworking class at a local community college.  The first assignment was a wooden frame.  While everyone else made small picture frames, I decided to make my first woodworking project (since Jr High Shop class) around this mirror, which measured around 3′ x 2′.   The frame is made from Honduran mahogany and finished in natural Danish oil.

It’s finally found a suitable home.
