There are many ways to create a wooden heart. Some methods avoid the lathe entirely (hand- or power-carving, band- or scroll-sawing), and others utilize the lathe but rely on split-turning or deconstruction-reconstruction techniques. Here I present a method to create a heart on the lathe via multiaxis turning. This
is a fun intermediate-level process that involves spindle turning, face grain turning, drilling on the lathe, and a bit of end grain hollowing at the top of the form.
