I could never draw hearts. So to make this I had to go to Michaels hobby store and walk the isles to find something heart-shaped that was hard enough to trace around, yet didn’t have glitter all over it.
Don’t get me wrong, nothing spruces up a shop full of scrap wood and sawdust like glitter, but the stuff inevitably gets on my face.
Anyway, I bought the lighter piece of lacewood for a project, then needed more, so I got the second piece later hence the mismatch. So in an effort to clear out some of the scrap wood, I decided to make this.
I also bought a heart shaped plate for smaller pieces of wood less than 9” wide.
I’m really happy with how they turned out. These go to my retail location and hopefully will sell for valentines day.
The walnut was free, the lacewood cost me almost $40 at one time. The prices were written in the end grain so it’s a bit more expensive than the walnut.
Thanks for looking.
