Flowers she can't kill...

Just finished v-day present for wife. She doesn’t have the best record with keeping flowers alive. I figured she would enjoy these more ( and for longer), I saw a video of Carl Jacobson make these on you tube. It didn’t take very long if there are more procrastinators out there… Great way to use up some scrap. Flowers are maple, purpleheart, red heart, walnut and bubinga.

“Flowers she can’t kill”.

Such a romantic!

I lol’d for an hour just reading the title.

Nice looking work too!

Those flowers look outstanding, maybe next year might try some inside out flowers!

I’d prefer to think that she gets to enjoy them all year ‘round! Nice work!

Love the title and the idea. I am sure your wife will enjoy them for years.

Nice and beautiful project and gift. The effort to make some is true Valentine’s spirit.

they look great but if it requires the use of a lathe , It would take me years to do, Somehow Lathes and me don’t get along too well.

Have your say...
