Since this is a slow time around here I’ve been experimenting with some new ideas for my shop. I’ll get to those some other time because I thought I should first get some Valentines related projects made and available in my etsy shop.
I have created this from 100 year old Prince Edward Island barnboard. Each piece is cut from the original 11 1/2″ wide boards with character that can only be obtained by years of weathering. I used a router to carve out the heart which is about 8″ x 8″ and the initials which are 1 1/2″ tall and from 1″ to 1 1/2″ wide. Of course it is supposed to look as if initials are carved into a tree!
I think this looks small in photos, but it’s 15 1/2″ tall x 11 1/2″ wide x 1/2″ thick.
You can see the texture of this beautiful barnboard by looking at the next photo.
On the back is a hanger.
Here it is hanging in my shop with a few other items for sale.
