Rustic Mirror made from Croatian barn oak

Just thought I would share some pics of the interesting Croatian barn oak I managed to get my hands on for a rustic mirror.

Of course the oak is reclaimed. I am very fortunate to know some fantastic timber suppliers so I get first choice on a lot of reclaimed wood that comes in. This oak is beautifully aged and full of character so I had to have it.

I thought it would be perfect for a large character piece with its unique patina. The final result was a Large Rustic Mirror.

I think this piece is example of why people love rustic furniture. It’s not just the aesthetics but the fact that this wood has had such an interesting history to it. It’s grown up in a European forest and weathered all kinds of conditions, perhaps for hundreds of years? Then it’s moved on to being part of picturesque barn in the Croatian country side. It’s probably been in the barn for longer than most of  us have lived as they stop using Oak for barns a long time ago.

Now it finds itself across the channel with a completely new life in some one’s home. It will outlast all of us and who knows where she will end up.  Maybe in hundred years from now some else will stare at her and wonder the same things?

I have this mirror on sale in my online shop at the moment for £300.00

Handmade Picture Frame.

I had an order for a small Picture Frame that needed to match some existing Frames i had previously made some time back.

This little frame has an aperture of 20 x 25cm, and I have used some fairly chunky old French Barn Oak for it.

I’m happy to make any size Picture Frames, with or without glass or mounts, just drop me an email and I’ll price it up for you.

Chunky Oak Rustic Mirrors

I made these Chunky Oak Rustic Mirrors for Jack Rabbit Barbers new salon in Southampton,Chunky Oak Rustic Mirrors

Nick the owner wanted the Mirrors to add some interest and fit in with his Industrial style decor, the salon looks stunning and it all works really well together.

Next on the workload is a made to measure Reclaimed Oak mirror, a Rustic Picture frame and a set of Pine Shelves.

Handmade Oak Mirror.

One of my Bespoke Mirror orders was for my friends parents, no pressure! They wanted something Rustic and with Texture to complement their furniture, they already had the mirror glass so it was just the frame that I supplied.

I used some Pit Sawn English Oak that was reclaimed from an old barn, loads of character in the Oak and great weathered Patina.
