With Valentines Day sneakin up on us, this/these were inspired by Scott Phillips from The American Woodshop. One is Bicote & Walnut, the other is Redheart & Oak. The smaller ones, the cut-outs, are just Walnut and Oak. The Redheart and Oak box has a 1/16” Oak slice running through it. I really liked this. I re-used the cut-outs, cut the apart using an 1/8” bs blade, re-glued them as another heart box. Finished with Shellac, and a MinWax spray Satin Poly. I’m not sure just yet if I will line them with anything. Still pondering that. Thnx for lookin. Any comments, good/bad/ugly, always appreciated.

Have you thought about flocking the interiors? Easy, economical, and the results are gorgeous- much like your boxes.

Very nice Roger. A good way to soften their hearts. What’s the filler, candy or jewelry?

Nice boxes, and super pusher for ripping pieces that are both tall and small, on the band saw. I’ve never seen that design before and it looks to be very effective for a very difficult to (safely) hold cut.
