I HAD SOME PRETTY SPECIAL PIECES OF WALNUT THAT I WAS TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH, AND I DECIDED ON TURNING IT INTO A WALL HANGING WITH A SHELF, THE WOOD OF COURSE IS WALNUT, IT IS FINISHED WITH 5 COATS OF GLOSS LACQUER AND NOW HANGS IN MY BEDROOM, WALNUT IS MY FAVORITE HARDWOOD AND IVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE A LOT OF IT LATELY AND CAN SEE IT ALL OVER IN MY HOME, THANKS FOR TAKING A LOOK.

I (heart) it! Seriously Grizz, it’s a beautiful piece. You emphasized the key element in the wood. Well done.

Excellent vision of what to do with these pieces. Is the heart a piece of walnut too? The finish is also very nice. Great job.

I’ll assume that is the natural wood finished to highlight the heart shape, if so that is unique.
No matter how it got that way the presentation is outstanding.
