I was trying to decide what to make my wife for Valentines Day. You know all my presents are made from wood – at lease I am told. I considered the box from Shelia Landry that I saw in me latest Creative Woodworking and Crafts mag. but is was too large and she really has no need for it. So I decided on this Heart Plaque, that was designed by Keith Fenton. that could either sit on a table or hung on the wall. I will let her decide.

I have looked at this pattern for a while but considered it too hard and my scroll saw is not running that well any way. I have the parts ordered. Like any project it is just one cut at a time and stay right on the line.

It is made from 1/2 inch oak and the center is dropped 1/4 inch. The walls between the cuts range between 1/16 to 1/8 thick. I will say that I did not break or miss-cut any part of it – luck I guess.

It could have a backer board on the center section but I, also, will wait on that till she sees it.

Wonderful labor of love Jerrrells. I am in awe of the number of times this piece requires connecting, unconnecting and reconnecting the blade. You did this beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
