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? :frown: 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.
