I really hate buying greetings cards, especially when they eventually find their way into the bin, so I tend to like to create my own and this was an idea I had to use some small glass shelves that were left over from a cabinet that we had thrown away.

The heart is carved from a bit of oak off-cut and the stand is a bit of oak framing that I picked up somewhere, again an off-cut.

Really simple and easy but with plenty of impact. Unfortunately the glass bit didn’t survive our house move up to the Lakes so it is no more…

That is really cool-my wife would love it as she has a thing for hearts. Ever think of doing something like that in Bloodwood, or is Bloodwood too hard to carve?

I really like it. Hope you also don’t mind a spin off, but you’ve given me an idea using those materials.

Great idea and nicely done. What did you use to stick the wood on the glass?
