but I also used some left over Cherry and Walnut, the little accent bulbs I found in a second hand store, the side lights
I purchased at Home Depot. The Morado was 82.00 bucks and the rest was just sitting around.
All the lighting fixtures I got at the Habitat for Humanity store for about 10.00 dollars.
Total cost was about 150.00 including the wood, clock, varnish, fixtures, bulbs
it would split even with small screws in pre-drilled holes, the grain pattern and color is worth it if you have the patience for it.
Make a rabbit down the verticals to accomodate the mirror and the outside piece.
In this case it was 3/4 walnut cut in half to save wood and weight,
I filled the screw holes with plugs cut from scraps. there is a glued in backer board to hold the top pieces togeather.
The red wood is Paduk with Ebony in lays the strip was cut in half to fit under the top and bottom ledges.
Cuts are kept consistant by using a guide on the saws square, the bolt you see can be losened to allow me to pick the spacing of the cuts
