Customer Focus - Paul Stewart

It is always good to see project submissions that use our free Heart and Ribbon project.  Paul Stweart sent this finished project image into us and as you can see he made the most of the models in the project!  

"Two Hearts Joined As One"

"The approx size is 17"x 6.5"
in hard maple and about 2 1/2 hrs. of cutting time
Finish was clear gloss lacquer - 3 coats- sanding in between coats.
This was made as a wedding gift for a couple that my wife worked with.

Paul posted this project in the Vectric Forum, back in September, and received lots of interaction from other forum users.  You might want to check it out - 


What a great gift!  Nice work Paul!

Leaves and flowers... all you need to make a great panel project!

Flowers and leaves have always been a very popular motif in home decor.  Hand carved into wood, stone or cast into ceramic to add a bit of nature to our inside spaces.  They can be found all over the place including banisters, furniture, wall hangings, backsplashes, wood trim, and the list goes on. 

This project is packed with so many possibilities because the models are very interchangeable.  It is easy to create a flower or leaf motif that you can carry throughout a room or your home.  Even if you are not looking to take on a home renovation, this project is easily hacked together with our other projects to create a unique project.
