Match box mirror

I had both a lot of fun and a fair amount of cussing turning this. Well OK there's very little turning. I glued a photo to the body and then turned the other side. I burned in the quote and burned the detail. I made the match from pine that I wire brushed. I made the match head with epoxy, woodputty, and airbrush colors. The head was carved and textured with a dremel.

That is a very unique project. I had to stare at it for quite awhile. How big is it? Very interesting indeed.

It's a little bit bigger than my standard mirrors. It's 9x18x1 1/2
