    I’m adding this to my project list! The PDF should include the pictures of you and House, though.

    Oh dear, well, I suppose pictures of the two of us would make a great Halloween gift!

    @Backyard: That’s the greatest woodworking technique to understand. One small gift for the wife balances out one tool purchase. I think.

    Hey Steve

    Like the new site … ’bout time methinks? Good to see …

    One small detail about this page, this comment box and the You Tube box seem a bit too big, infact this whole column isn’t quite wide enough, losing some vital info man!

    I don’t think it’s my browser/Mac??
    Hope this helps …

    Regarding gluing, flat surface to flat surface, I’ve always ‘rubbed’ one surface against the other, as much as 12-20 mm, going with the grain
    This, believe it or not helps eliminate any air in the glue and creates a kinda vacuum, suction effect which in some circumstances, not all, is enough to hold the pieces in place i.e. those drawer support blocks under a base of a drawer box?
    It can also help reduce ‘clamp creep’ when you apply the clamp, the pieces slide off from where you want them!

    This could be seen as a ‘natural’ clamp perhaps
    So you now have 31 clamps amigo!!!

    Like the wax paper tip, I can see a domestic coming on when the wife wants to make jam again he! he!

    Bye for now

    Wow…that’s interesting about the layout of this site. It’s basically just a Blogger template. What browser do you use? I’ll have to check this out on a Mac later this week and see what you are seeing!

    Thanks!

    I was wondering though, how thick is the wood you used?

    Thanks! Had some extra 3/4 inch wood left over and was about to make one… but realized right before that the inner heart would come out way too thick.

    Quick question ~ how did you cut the circle for the base?

      Being somewhat of a novice on the band saw, I was excited to find an easy project. I followed the instructions cut the two inside hearts in half folded the over and found that the inside heart was twice the thickness of the outside heart ummmm. review the video and can’t see where that dimension was noted. Not to worry I will have a 3D Picture frame or just cut it the same dimensions as the outside thickness. Could have been a brain fart ,,,but I enjoyed making the heart inside a heart thanks
