Read the statement by Michael Teeuw here.
Wood type for mirror frame
What type of wood did you use for your frame? i’m not sure what thickness i need to make something that i sturdy enough to hold everything together.
It mostly depends on your design and size of mirror. A sketch or dimensions would be useful.
But as a general guide is if in doubt go bigger/thicker.
Look at some of the builds that have been documented already. You actually see the wood being used.
Yes you can use ANY material that you can make work. I would have preferred steel or alum but I have NO clue how to weld and paying someone would be VERY expensive…sooooooooooo I used the material I work with almost everyday…Wood.
It’s inexpensive [depending on what you use] … I used mahogany alot… I have 3 built and they all have that in them…plus pine.
