Default Wedding Items

My 37 year old daughter was married last weekend (Jan 4). I'm over the moon, they've been a couple for 16 years so I wondered if this day would ever arrive.

Anyway I made a couple of items for the event. I scrolled a cake topper, a surprise her mother and I thought would be fun.

The other item is an alternative wedding guest book. She sent me a picture of one from theknot.com. Basically it’s a picture frame with a backer and a glass front – creating a cavity between the two. Guests sign a wooden heart and drop them in. When they ask I’ll complete the frame so it can be hung. I scrolled between 66 hearts from 1/8 baltic birch plywood. The frame is cherry, 17 x 14.5


I wanted a frame that could be “mechanically” fastened so that if at some point they wanted to open the unit and move the hearts around it could be done. I looked at joint choices and choose a mitered half-lap joint. I’d never made one before – an opportunity to try something new. The corners are held together with 1/8" dowels.

And I had to make an easel to hold 'guest book'.

I couldn't figure out how to get pics to appear next to the relevant copy? Anyway thanks for looking.

Very nice job Berry. You can reconnect using your old account but you'll have to wait for Cricket to return from her personal leave. She'll be able to give you a temporary password for your oldhudson account.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Nice job. Especially on the mitered half-lap. I've always shied away from that joint because of the precision needed to get it right. Always impressed with woodworkers who can do that.

That is so cool, I have never seen anything like that. Great job too, on the sign and the stand. Also to Bride and Groom , Many happy years together, and also for you and your wife.

I love the “Finally Mr and Mrs” My brother and his girlfriend need. They’ve been together for 19 years with 2 kids.
