I was thinking about some sort of small wooden trinkets I could make to get the word out in town what I do. This popped into my head and heres a few prototypes.

I don’t have ANY exotics hanging around but for the hearts the left one is Red Oak, Center one I think ints poplar the right one is Hickory. All the crosses are Dark Walnut.

Hand a few of these out to some of the local clergy I will.

BUT I am torn.. Should I mount the cross into the heart permanently or leave it were it can me taken out?

Nice! Purple hart would be a good choice for the hart. I think removable crosses, perhaps with a strong magnet so they don’t just fall apart when picked up would be a good idea. The magnets could be hidden under a piece of matching veneer so they wouldn’t be visible.

I hope you don’t mind if I borrow this idea for Christmas gifts. Depending on the size, they would make great stocking stuffers.

Please do as you wish. These are too time consuming to really sell at a tai price. BUT I think 20 spread around might get my phone to ring.

I was thinking purple heart but my experience has been when you put a finish over it it turns very very dark.

I need to get t STL and get a few exotics I think Zebrawood would work great. Maybe some bird eye maple.

Yes thought about little magnets.???? The cross members are only 1/4 wide the hight of the cross is 2 1/2 inches if that give you any scale.

I do not have a real disc sander or dick sander bet sander combo so I am using a drill in my vice with a disc pad on it to sand those things up. These very small parts are hard to work this way and I have sanded little thin skinned red patches into my middle finger and thumb.

Years ago I had one of these cheap things…Wish I had it now for these hearts. The BELT part with the metal stiff back off would be perfect for the rounded heart!

Those look great. Good job. If you r gonna sell them then glue the cross cause it’ll fall out and get lost real easy.
If a minister would want one I could see the value in having unglued cause they could show people that “there’s a void until u let Christ in then ur complete” or something along those line
Also I think they’d make good Christmas tree ornaments if u had a string on the top as a hanger

That is exactly what I was thinking. Could take out the cross to illustrator a void in your heart!
