I built this cedar heart box for one of our daughters whose birthday is 02-14. The double sided tape I had wouldn’t hold the template to the cedar so I countersank 4 holes in the template and screwed it to some scrap to lock them together. This was after work on 02-13. I have a serious procrastination disorder!
Thanks for lookin,

I too suffer from APS (Acute Procrastination Syndrome), maybe we can organize a “Charity Drive” and split the money!!! I’ll contact you tomorrow or…...

Nice box. I kind of liked the pattern made by the forstner bit in the cedar.
I too suffer from a certain level of procrastination. One of these days I will seek help for it though.

Great idea for the young granddaughters…......Thanks
Cedar goes well with the heart idea.
Wondered why you didn’t clamp the wood to workbench or drill press table. When I need to temporarily hold pieces for intarsia and double sided tape doesn’t work, I use fun tack. You know the stuff that looks like silly putty, accidentally invented and used for tacking. After a while too much sanding dust ruins it and it’s garbage. It does work well for the delicate items and uses.
