Jim – Thanks
Brian88 – Yes it is done with a router and template. I have a single heart template (hand drawn and cut out of 1/2 MDF) that I used to create this. the inspiration came to me when I had three individual hearts lined up on the bench waiting for finish. I took the single template and marked it out and then measured down from the bottom point 1/2 inch and lined up the top inside point to that mark and repeated for the third one. Cleaned most of it out with a forstner bit at the drill press then cleaned it out with a bowl bit. Then I scribed an 1/2” out line and then cut it out on the band saw. Then I spent the next 1/2 century sanding and profiling :-).

What router bit do you find works best for this type of project?

Really nice! Innovative, too. I’ve been thinking of different templates to make, also. This one is a keeper.

Julie – I use a 1 1/4” bowl and try bit with a template guide bearing and 1/2” shank. It give you nice smooth walls with an small curve to transition to the flat bottom. To get the 2” depth I use a collet extension.
Gene – Definitely a keeper, showed this off to the ladies at work and now I have a lot more to make :-)

I have been wanting to try this for years, your triple heart is great! It looks like pine, I’ll have to check your other projects to see what else you’ve done.Thanks for sharing,Julie

Julie – It is pine. Salvaged some old water beds so I have pine coming out of my ears.
