48 Inch Mirror

I built this 48 inch diameter mirror for a lovely fussy customer who knew what she wanted. It is made of Sapele Mahogany and consists of 4 plys, each 1/8 by 2 and 1/4 wide, glued with Weldwood liquid resin glue, many(about 30)clamps, 4 men to glue it up, lots of hoping, custom router on a plywood swing arm to rabbet for mirror and to smooth top and bottom, added metal copper embellishments inside and out, hung with custom designed french cleat (oak), 2 people to hang it, and a happy lady!
