Another Anniversary

Just a simple little reverse inlay she will find leaning against her coffee cup. A single rose will accompany it. “You & I” just didn’t have the same ring to it…

the glowforge gods smiled on me, because I couldn’t see that stain problem on the 2 through the mask - got lucky it was on the back! Tight enough that I had to hammer the numbers in.

Thank you, it beats a Hallmark. I wondered how to orient the woodgrain of the pieces, and decided to skew the Walnut. I liked it better than vertical or horizontal.

I do too. And I never thought of orienting it that way, but it’s much nicer!

Nothing better than a custom made greeting. Happy anniversary!

Larger or small, making a gift is so much more special than buying something. I love the simplicity of it, no need to go crazy because you can.

Yeah, even though there was plenty of area to embellish with engraving, clean and simple appealed to me.
Just a little something from scrap material can mean a lot!

That’s quite an achievement. Congratulations on the marriage and well done on the artwork.

Thank you. The ability to do little things like this is exactly why I bought the glowforge, so rewarding to iterate an idea so easily!

Regarding the marriage, most of the credit goes to her astounding ability to put up with me.

If she were a fan of Hitchhiker’s guide I would have found some way to incorporate that! :sunglasses:
