I was able to get a really nice piece of Bloodwood from the lumber mill I go to, good and wide. After a lot of careful thought on how to use it, I had the idea to make a heart clock. I’m sure you can come up with a lot of great uses as well, but I really liked the idea of being able to make a big 10” wide heart out of a single piece of Bloodwood.

It measures 8 1/4” high and is about 7/8” thick. There’s a section to the right that has an amazing beautiful iridescent reddish-orange color running through it that you can see better in the 2nd and 3rd pictures.

Finished with 3 coats of high gloss tung oil, buffed to a mirror finish.

Thanks for looking.
