I made this for this years woodcarving shows.

This abstract heart within a heart is made of walnut with a bloodwood stand. It stands 14” tall x 9” wide and 2” deep. The hearts color are more brown than the pictures show. Not a camera kind of guy!

Plenty of sanding on this piece!

When first I saw you, my heart was swollen to three times it’s size, and I new your heart would live inside of me forever.

I am going to have to do something similar for my grand babies. Including the above phrase.
