The Blacker House Entry Mirror with Reid Anderson October 1 - 2, 2022

about this workshop

When you enter the great Greene & Greene masterpiece, the Blacker House in Pasadena, you’ll be immediately struck by the outstanding cabinet with carved panels to the right and the very elegant mirror that’s just above it. Though this piece is not very well known-like the famous Blacker Chairs, it’s a wonderful and subtle piece of furniture with perfect proportions and elegant details. The accompanying mirror is just as stunning. It’s just the right size for any home and it blends well in any home décor. This vertical mirror is 38” x 16” and offers a few special challenges. Most notable is a very unusual angled haunched joint at the top that must fit perfectly. It’s challenging and tricky to perfect, but once you’ve experienced how to cut it, you’ll have a new joint to add to your skill set. This mirror makes for a perfect anniversary, wedding or special occasion gift.
