Stocking stuffer for the wife. I bought the metal and made the wood piece to adhere.

Wood is Ambrosia Maple, resawn to an 1/8 inch on the band saw and engraved with a laser. LMT stands for “Licensed Massage Therapist”, and her cards are included inside of the 3rd picture.

Finished with several coats of spray lacquer (Satin) and adhered with CA glue.

Thanks for looking, work safe!

Nice job. It will make a cool stuffer. Reminds me to get something for my wife’s stocking.

Thanks for checking in guys,

Dave you better get on that- you’re running out of time!

Tony I was able to get my hands on some real nice sap ambrosia, which is way more streaky than the heart.

Potz – I got the metal part from Rockler for $11.99

Small projects are a great way to use up small scraps of wood, engraving looks great!

My wife makes and sells a bunch of these with a glass “skin” on the lid from dhgate

This place has an excellent return service for items that may have defects, etc. Good source for all sorts of these metal items that can be customized.
