Recycled Door and Mirror

A neighbor replaced a meranti (Genus Shorea) door which had partially decayed and he gave it to me. After leaning against a wall outside for a few years I sawed off the rotten bits and made this mirror from some of it.

The thick base and uprights are from one of the sides of the door and the edges of the mirror from a couple of the slats. The mirror glass was also recycled having previously been stuck directly on a wall.

The mirror hinges were surprisingly hard to get. We eventually found them at a huge hardware & timber store, no thanks to any of the store assistants who had never heard of such a thing.
