Tony's Mirror Stand

We are grateful to the Boyden Library for loaning us their ceiling mirror to use at our meetings for our watercolor demonstrators. To buy one of our own would cost upwards of $1,000. The only problem is that we can't install it in the ceiling at St. Mark's for structural reasons. Fortunately Tony Donovan has designed an elegant (and inexpensive) solution. Pictured above is the completed, 4-stanchion frame. The lower photo shows Tony working on one of the prototypes. The frame was especially designed with PVC pipes so it could be dismantled and stored with the mirror in Community Room closet safely. Thanks to Tony and the Boyden Library, the audience will now be able to watch future watercolor demonstrators without having to crowd around the table.
