Finished this today, a gift for my daughter’s birthday so she can organize all her rings and such.
Another build using scrap wood from past projects.
The build had multiple issues, joint breaks, chipped edges, runny finish, etc but I enjoy trying to figure out how correct them. Learning from past mistakes helps me to do the next project more efficiently.
Thanks for looking.

Looks good from where I am sitting, Carl. The intertwined hearts are a great touch.

I wouldn’t have noticed (and still didn’t) any of those issues if you hadn’t of mentioned them. Great job and that is half of the fun, making all those little, uh, challenging issues and figuring out how to fix them.
I like the hearts too… are they burned in or inlay?
Thanks for sharing.

The celtic heart design is pyrography, using my latest tool, Peter Child kit from local Woodcraft store. I’m really enjoying using it to personalize and sign my finished projects.
Check out what I was able to do with it on a wine barrel top in my project listing.
