Only had an hour to put so thing together for my wonder wife on Valentine’s Day. Had been traveling and returned today. I had heard about this project and wanted to give it a try. Grabbed my old reliable Siegley StS #7 hand plane and a piece of scrap reclaimed 200 year old pine. Add some diluted Cabernet stain, mix with a bit of creativity and behold, the winter rose. Look close, those petals are wood shavings.

Long after those guys who’s Roses from the florist have faded, and crinkled up, your Wife will still be enjoying that beautiful flower too. I think it’s possibly the first Valentines gift I have ever seen that was truly something from the heart.

Nice job.

Looks so realistic. Nice work. Feel free to share your method after the shavings fly.
