“Box of Love” from my dad to my daughter. He carved each heart from a different type of wood.”
Just called my dad to double check – The one in my hand is indeed padauk. Under that is spalted birch, pine, and then zebra wood. Inside the box is maple, osage orange, walnut, and there is a cherry heart underneath. The box is made from birdseye maple and walnut.
He cut each one out using a scroll saw. Then used a carving knife and belt sander. He created the facets with the belt sander and sand paper. He said each heart took about half an hour.”
