Really nice does the wood come out to expose the mirror. I think I see a seam around perimeter and a center ring maybe a finger pull. Or is this the back and I'm way off

It's just a hand mirror and this is the back.

Nice mirror. Love the shape and wood selection. Did you turn the frame?
I made one for my wife for Christmas this year. Walnut, band saw to within 1/8", then used pattern bit / router to get it to final shape. It's wrapped or I'd post a photo.

Fantastic job. It looks really great!! I love the little bits of spalting in the wood. Thanks for posting.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Really nice job. Is everything turned or just the handle? Where did you find the wood?

Ledhead and sticky- yes everything is turned

sticky- The wood is from trees felled on my parents property

John - That half bead I think you are talking about had to be carved to fit the frame. Gotta watch that. and thanks for the help.

I look at forum a lot on my Droid phone. I see a seam all the way around perimeter like a 1/2" in from edge that's why I asked that

I've got a netbook and I can barely see it so I can't imagine looking at this stuff on a phone. What you are seeing is just a little detail groove.

I have saved many fine specimens of wood that were either discarded or left to go back to nature. The last small board was a piece of walnut that I rescued from a woodpile ready to be burned!
