Two names are carved in one of the 19+ fine woods I stock, Minitag style, and then pressure bonded atop each other. The woods pictured are (in order) Cocobolo, Cumaru, Maple and Red Oak. Other woods to follow.
The ♥ is carved adjacent to the name that I feel will balance the piece, and is colored with a non-toxic acrylic red ink. The assembled piece is then finished with three coats of clear lacquer.
The letters are approximately .375 inch tall x .25 inch thick, by however long the names are. Once bonded together, the overall height is about .75 inch.
The freehand letter style is one I have developed over 28+ years for strength and legibility. They are done on a 35 year old Sears bandsaw.
No computer bytes were harmed in production of these these.
