Solid Mahogany Table with etched and coloured mirror top Description of Image: This solid mahogany coffee table I made with a hexagonal top and a mirror insert.
The mirror is sand etched using a hand cut resist (stencil) on the rear surface,
which removes the mirroring.
The etch (based on a Victorian style ornamentation) was then coloured with transparent glass inks.
It is lit from the underside with a spotlight fitted as an integral part of the design,
between the three hexagonal legs.

Size shown: 34" (86 cm) top with insert of 5 mm mirror; 18" (46 cm) high

Cost: Is totally dependent upon the complexity of the etch, and what is to be included.
The shown coffee table (etched mirror, coloured, and finished table) would cost $3600 US.
The etched insert only, (with design similar to one shown) would cost $600-800 US.

E-mail me with your ideas, and sizes. I'll quote you on the cost of supplying the etched substrate, or the entire piece.

Because of the method of sand etching glass, I must use a new resist with each etched piece. It is impossible to remove and reuse a hand cut vinyl resist, or a photoresist because the vinyl is cut in place on the glass, and the photoresist is glued onto the glass - both are ruined during removal.
