I created the heart piece as an anniversary present, designing both the lettering and the shape for the board upon which it was engraved. Once I had the finalized design laid out, I worked with a craftsman from Etsy who created the piece exactly to spec.
The second piece was designed as a commemorative wedding present. I designed it with the the hole so that it could be hung on the wall to remember the event. All letters and decoration are custom-made and specific for this piece.
Overall, I think that these turned out really well. I find that these wood pieces are a really fun way to bring letterforms to life and create beautiful pieces for others to enjoy.
