Hand crafted mirrors in American Cherry and WA Sheoak

These mirrors were custom made to  suit the clients’ living spaces. The sheoak mirror     was made using hand cut dovetail joints instead of mitres, to match those of the blanket chest in the same room. The cherry mirror (with maple inlay) suits the light space of the bedroom perfectly, and is a convenient alternative to a full length free-standing mirror.
