so i saw this project here on LJs (forgot by whom) and just had to try! its pretty rough looking…but it was a great valentines day present. Plus it was pretty fun to make…theres only one small crack on the tip of the arrow from drying. made with Cedar for the arrow and a scrap piece of birch ply for the heart

Cool. Did the receiver ask how it was done?

unfortunately the receiver did not understand the concept that the arrow could not physically fit through the hole….however she does love anything i build for her and thinks its an awesome addition to her desk.

Bandsaw rip down the middle of the arrow, glue up & sand?

nope =) the arrow and heart are both solid pieces with no ‘hidden’ cuts anywhere…let me see if i can find the how-to video of it…

saw it originally from a fellow named Austin…http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95188 He has a great instructional video on how to make it..i didnt like how short it was so i made a few design variances.
