A Valentine Reflection

About six months ago I posted a project Basket Weave Design Heart Boxes. The cut outs from that project laid on my work bench collecting dust since then. Like most of you, I didn’t want to throw them away. I figured I could find a way to re-purpose them. This is the idea I came up with, just in time for Valentine Day.

These are made from maple and finished with high gloss lacquer. I used wire designed to hold roll batting between floor joist to join the two hearts.

As always, thanks for looking!!

So whats up? You have three wives, three girlfriends or some sorta combo of the two? Either way I’m sure they all will be happy!

I have a few things hanging around the shop too that I may put to use some day but nothing I have comes close to your hearts. They look great and they are perfect for what’s coming on the 14th. Nice work Lee! Good to see you found a use for that insulation wire too! :)
