CW’s 9th annual Wonderland Auction is coming up on Saturday, December 10th at 6pm in the EMU Ballroom. Always a classy event, a fun time, and for a good cause. Lucky attendees can bid on, among many other nice items, this framed mirror.
A one-off piece using a wide-beveled mirror left over from an old project and some salvaged quartersawn California black oak from Curly Burly. Finished with a dye stain, tinted OSMO oil and wax, and topped off with several coats of black furniture wax to make the figure pop.
Lesson learned: When photographing mirrors, focus on the frame, not the reflection. But you get the idea.
