Default Love in the woods

I needed to make a wedding sign for a gift, but didnít want to make the same old thing. So I took a different approach to replicate the way young lovers might carve a heart into a tree. The wood was a scrap of 2 x 12 pine salvaged from a construction site. It was finished with acrylic paint followed by a coat of clear matte spray. Overall size is about 10" x 10" x 1.25".

Really create idea and fantastic execution! I like the way you did the bark and line it up with the growth rings inside. Very good,

That's awesome work, Oliver! Very nice, especially given the source of the wood. Well done!

How long did the bark take to cut?
