Made this for Jon Morris a long time friend. The dates are; his birth date, his wife’s birth date, the date of the first “date”, the wedding date and the birth dates of their three kids. Found a piece of very light colored cherry that was just right for the project.

great carving. I like how you have carved in the layout lines as part of the letters.

I use a CNC router on this and much of the other work I do. I still occasionally work with the traditional tools but i like the precision i get with computer aided woodworking. Thanks for the kind words.

Neat idea and I really like the lettering with the over carve markings. Makes for a GREAT design.
