2 other mirrors, spalted Hackberry

One mirror is spalted Hackberry. The other one has some spalted wood but the outside was just plain hackberry that I segmented together with black epoxy. The epoxy was very thin and was sucked into the end grain. I don't really like it but have gotten very favorable comments from my coworkers so I guess it will sell.

John,
Those are nice mirrors. I like the segmented piece. Reminds me of a wagon wheel.

Jeff you can get mirrors from several places. Woodcraft has them. Hobby Lobby has some cheaper looking ones. I think Craft Supply also sells them. I buy them in quantity from a company called Tripar. You need a tax# and minimum order is over $100.
