I built this cake topper for my daughter’s upcoming wedding. Here is the video of the build.
It is made from walnut and oak. The B and J are my daughter and her fiancé’s initials.
The heart is suspended by a guitar string epoxy’d to a rare earth magnet. The magnet goes into a hole in the top of the arch. A second magnet is epoxy’d into the top of the arch, so the heart is removable and (hypothetically) it can rotate/spin. I found out that the magnets are too strong to allow it to spin, but on the bright side, it holds the weight of the heart easily.
