Well worth looking into

The mirrors I make are all unique, and they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes - short, long, broad or narrow. Crafted mainly from oak, they are designed to show off the natural beauty of wood, and for the most part it's the wood that dictates the shape of the mirror. If the bark is still attached to the wood, so much the better. For those seeking a mirror that is truly different, look no further.

Prices vary considerably depending on the size and the style but, as a guide, a full length burr oak mirror may cost around £500, whereas a little ash mirror may only cost £100.

I rely heavily on top quality English hardwoods for my mirrors (and indeed for my dragonflies, humming birds and towel holders) and in that respect I am indebted to UK Hardwoods Ltd on the outskirts of South Molton in North Devon for their ever-cheerful, professional and willing assistance. They are always my first port of call; you’ll find them on ukhardwoods.co.uk.

I also make chalk boards, normally out of antique pine, and framed on 2 or 4 sides, with or without decoration. Prices vary depending on size and style but, again as a guide, normally between £40 and £60.
