I got this idea from a search for Valentine’s gifts. This came from the Vectric CNC website. Since I didn’t have a CNC, I modified this idea using my bandsaw and router. I have discovered that projects like this make it easier to purchase new tools in the future.

Now that’s a great idea, and I think it came out really nice.

I see major brownie points coming your way as a result of this! The writting “You Captured My Heart” is just icing on the ole brownie points cake. Man….(sniff, sniff) are a beacon to every red blooded husband who has to “work” his way into new tool purchases. lol…..

Ok, seriously, that is a great job. I can’t tell but, is the chain made out of wood also?
