This was created as a wedding gift for two great friends of ours who were married this past weekend on 4/6/2013.
I like to take pieces that the couple includes on their invitation or announcement and create a gift from them. This happened to be on their wedding invitation – they used actual Scrabble tiles and her engagement ring to spell the work “Love” and I took one look at it and knew it would make a great wall hanging.
Each tile in the hanging measures 4×4.125 (a tad taller than wider) and is solid cherry. I used my CNC Router to do the lettering on them. The ring was cut out with my scrollsaw. Overall dimensions, of course, are around 8 inches square.
Finish was a coat of Danish Oil and then a few coats of spray lacquer.
Picture four is a cell phone pic of the couple a few minutes after opening their gift last night. They loved it!
Congrats Amy & Kent – we love you guys!
