I promised my fiancee that I would never give her store bought flowers or cards for Valentine’s Day, it would always be hand written and hand made from the heart. Here are a couple of my last Valentine’s Day hearts.

I inlayed one heart into the other and called it “two hearts, forever one”. The other heart with the necklace was made to get myshelf out of trouble….. I had the necklace custom made by our local jewlery store…..oops…...even though it was custom made, it was store bought, so knew I was in trouble, so I made the heart box for the necklace. Got me off the hook and she loves the box as much as the necklace.

Each box was made with bloodwood. Seemed like a likely choice. I will have to say, Tracy loves everthing I make for her and I would much rather stand at my workbench making something special for her then standing at the card rack picking out a Hallmark thought.

Wow! Supercool. The photos are a little dark but the shaping and the finishing look extremely well done. I agree with you about making something for someone special. It’s a whole different level of devotion to getting it right and a great feeling knowing that they will treasure it because you made it for them.

Great work!
