I haven’t given Hallmark a cent since I got this thing. In a pinch, a couple of inexpensive graphics from Etsy and I’m good. Whew.
Walnut ply and red acrylic. Inverted cut press-fit inlay.
Beats a Hallmark, and a rose that doesn’t wilt. It will be 43 years this March - The woman has an inordinate tolerance.
It takes two to tango and I do believe you make it easy to be her Valentine!
That’s lovely, David! I LOVE press fit acrylic stuff. Your wife will love it because you made it for her.
This turned out beautiful. She will love it!
Great work! That will make her smile!
Beautiful turnout! Very thoughtful!
This is lovely and so special!
Congratulations on both your impressively long marriage and your beautiful inlay work!
Thank you all, I hope everyone has a special day!
Well done. Is that proofgrade? Grade figure.
Lovely, you’re obviously a keeper!
Is that proofgrade?
Yeah, I like the walnut so much I use it sparingly. I’ll take a bit more scrap just to get that diagonal wood grain.
Happy anniversary a little early!
That is such a beautiful sentiment! We’ll be 49 years this June. I still love my husband with all my heart.
Congratulations, and thank you!
Several projects here on the forum with inlays have inspired me to try a few myself. Surprised how good things with simply wood an acrylic inlay looked.
Really nice idea. Hope she loved it.
Oh, she did!
