Valentines Day a Little Corny Gift
My wife ask for nothing for Valentines Day because no cash was available. So me doing what I do best I made something a little special. Hearts and Arrows - Tic Tac Toe
Start off with a 3/4" x 6" pine board, cut list is as follows
4 pcs. 3/4" x 3/4" x 12"
1 pc. Luan 11 3/4" x 11 3/4"
4 pcs. 1/8" x 1/8" for the partitions
The cut the arrows and hearts according
1/8" x 11 3/4" x 11 3/4" square - choice the side of your choice
This is your partitions for the Hearts and arrows, which you cut into size and fit according within the square after assembly. I usually use 3 different stains so it all stands out.
I found these templates at Walmart. Using a bandsaw, or scrollsaw cut this pieces out carefully. Sand the pieces the way you want them to look
Again use 2 different stains for the Hearts and the Arrows. Have fun, because you can use any templates you want.
Your outcome will astonish you. I love the outcome, and of course my wife has seen this piece. I think it cute. don't forget you need to allow proper time for drying of stain and polyurethane.
