Post Valentine Day Valentines


Because I’m pretty sure we all wish Valentines Day was every day, I knew you would want to see more heart projects. Um, yeah. Actually, a lot of people had to wait to send me pictures after the 14th so their Valentines would be surprised. Good stuff here. And it  should be the end of the hearts for another year!


Andrew Pritchard’s oak and plywood bandsaw box.

Check out Annemieke van Bavel’s wildly imaginative bathroom. So many ideas to borrow here.
A few people checked in with their versions of my recent heart-shaped box with tray.
Delk’s Custom Furniture made this with bubinga and wenge.
I love the curved shape Gianclaudio Milano added to his tray.
Jim Jarvis gave his a different look simply by extending the base.
Ross Copper used reclaimed oak and even cut oak veneer to cover the difficult-to-deal-with end grain.
This is James Blokdijk’s first bandsaw box and this week’s “aw” moment. Ring included.
Glenn Shea made this candy box based on the one I made last year. It was a tricky project, but Glenn’s came out great!
Broken heart necklace by Gabe Bocchino. Glass half full: I see it more as two halves united!
Here’s a cool three-heart art piece from Paul Willmore. Love the color of the wood.
This is the second year Zach Mustard has a valentine’s project for us. Last year he made a lighted heart for his girlfriend. This time he made this rotating jewelry carousel.
Not a heart, but fitting the Valentine theme, Dallas Diehl made roses from a 100-year-old juniper fence post stem.
Finally, this is my absolute favorite design! This bud vase holder from Jens Klank is so classy.

  1. That bud vase holder is pretty awesome.

    As I was watching the spiral cutting jig being built I caught myself thinking about how I would cut out the pieces on my CNC. Then I did a face palm as I realized it would be a lot easier to cut the spirals on the CNC instead. Not that I ever had any intention of building the jig, I much prefer building actual projects rather than “shop projects”. I swear some woodworkers never do build anything in their shop except for stuff for their shop. I don’t get the point of that. If you’re never going to build anything else in there, why bother to build stuff to organize it make it easier to build the things you’re not going to build?

  2. About six months ago, my daughter and I was shopping looking for a changing table for a my youngest grandson. We didn’t want to spend to much, but we wanted something of quality and the ones she kept picking out were outside the budget and I wasn’t to impress with the craftsmanship. So I what home and jumped online and did some research on what it would take to build my own table. That’s when I came across this great site called This thing that Ted put together came in so handy. I went looking for a changing table and came out with over 16,000 step-by- step woodworking plans that has made every projects I’ve done so far super easy, under budget, and nothing but the best quality craftsmanship out on the market today. No short cuts here, nothing but the best techniques laid out in a very formative format that made things super easy. Which in return, help me create quality craftsmanship and long lasting treasures. I was compelled to share this great site with others, in hopes this would help further your woodworking ambitions so you too, could start being proud of your projects.

  3. And most woodworkers who own these brands seem very happy with them.
    Afer you havee your headboard it iis time to build the sides and footboard, also by using MDF.
    The efficiency of computer-controlled equipment increases the production rate.

    A seconjd table to be considered for your woodworeking shop is the finishing table.
