craftsman mirror


Wood frame mirrors

An oak mirror is an obvious choice if you are considering craftsman style mirrors. A hand made in the USA mirror will look quite a bit better than a cheaply made foreign counterpart. A wooden mirror need not be oak. Solid cherry is another option for those who want to push the boundary a little bit. Gustav Stickley was well known, in part, for his mission style mirror with quartersawn white oak with prominent ray flakes, or as it is sometimes referred to "tiger striping". One concern about shipping a craftsman mirror or mission mirror is possible breakage during transit. But surprisingly, it is a rare event and certainly not something to be concerned about.
