I saw this in a projects book recently and took a couple hours to knock it out. It was a very doable project for me, despite my lack of toolery. The head of the arrow is about 3/16” or so larger than the hole. The entire project was done by hand – I think I used my ryoba saw, a chisel or two, a pocket knife and a rasp (oh yeah, and my bit brace!). I was pleased with how cylindrical the shaft of the arrow is, considering it was purely done with a bench chisel!
EDIT: The heart is made of kempas and the arrow is pine (I think!).
