I was looking at the piece of wood that I had cut out of a larger box (also in the shape of a heart) and I thought – heck, I’m a Lumberjock. There’s no such thing as scrap wood, right? These two boxes are paduak and maple – cut ‘em into the shape of a heart (obviously) – put a pin in the top for a hinge, used a forstner bit to make a hole and flocked it. Then I added a couple of rare earth magnets so they stay closed. The toughest part was making the little teeny hearts for the top of the hinge pin. The fingers got scary close to the blade for those. Thanks for taking a look.

Nice – I know what you mean on those little hearts – try routing a 1 1/2 inch wide heart, now thats scary.
