One of my wifes valentines gifts this year. I used a grinder to carve it after hand picking a good piece of scrap walnut cutting it out with my jig saw. Used spray lacquer for the finish not something i usually do but i was pressed for time.Hey does anyone know how to get the thumbnail picture for your projects to load at actual size? Mine are always cropped.

I don’t know about the thumbnail sizing nor do I know how to do such a beautiful chunk of wood. Both grain and finish are awesome. How big is it?

Magnificient heart. You did a great job. I too love the grain and finish. Sorry, don’t know about the thumbnail pictures.

It looks like when the pictures are resized for the thumbnail the proportions are different for the thumbnail than what your original picture is… So instead of stretching the image and distorting it, Im sure cropping it to fit the thumbnail block was a better option.

The thumbnail pics are 97×65 pixels, so the only way to make it so your photos aren’t cropped is to have the same aspect ratio as the thumbnails.
