New hand mirrors

I made these from Wisteria vine and maple burl. The Wisteria was sliced up and glued together along with a segmented ring made from wisteria to give the mirror the right thickness. Then the handles were carved. The maple burl was turned from one solid piece. It just barely cleared the bed ways and was like turning a one bladed propeller. Caution was the word for the day.
