Multi-Layer/Level Valentine Gift

Carved this for my 7 yr old grandson to give to his mother for Valentine’s Day. I wanted the rim around the heart to protrude as the highest level which created a lot of excess to cut away. Used 7/8" thick white oak. Would have like it to be a full 1" but my deepest cutting bit is 7/8" so planed the stock to that thickness. It is about 9 1/2" long and 5" tall.

Although the text and Inventables owl icon could have been cut in Easel I used F-Engrave to carve them on the cut surfaces with a 60 degree V-bit.

Thanks Phil J for encouraging the use of F-Engrave. I does and awesome job!
