The mirror is held by two slots on the inner wooden curves, and the tension of the four wooden curves that are stuck together merely on the bottom of the handle; hence, the mirror can easily be slipped out and replaced if needed.
The block of wood (top image), is the frame of the curves used to form the pieces of thin veneer wood. The four curves were made through the process of bent-lamination; one curve consists of three layers of veneer wood. To produce one curve, three pieces of veneer were first soaked in water to gain more flexibility then glued together and instantly put between the block of wood, gripped with tight clamps, to form its curve. The sides of each wooden curve are stained walnut wood.
