A sapling in the early 1500s, the 330+ year old yellow birch used in this entry hall mirror was recently reclaimed from the watery depths where it sank after being logged over 150 years ago. The grayish and subtle golden discolorations are evidence of the tree's long, submerged history. It was an honor to work with this beautiful reclaimed old-growth wood.
Made of solid wood, this piece features open mortise and tenon corner joints in the mirror frame, doweled cabinet joinery, frame and panel cabinet backs, hand-cut dovetail drawers, and shop-made brass knife hinges and wall hangers. The mirror backing was designed and handwoven by Carol Rajala Johnson, also of Studio Tupla.
