10 Commandments in English & Hebrew

A friend asked me to engrave some Beech and Red Heart with the 10 Commandments in English and Hebrew. Getting the Hebrew was more difficult than I thought it would be and I hope I got it right. I think the plaque came out nice and Beech is a dream to machine. This is 12" wide by 13" high.

That turned out really nice! Personally I think I would have looked even better if the red heart went all the way around the outside as well. It's still a pretty cool project though, good job!

Thanks, Guys! I can see where it would look better if the Red Heart went around the perimeter but he brought me the board glued up this way.

Thank you! How far off is the Hebrew?

Or to take the high road, how close is the Hebrew?

Wow, beautiful work. The Hebrew looks difficult to me. Ask a rabbi or a Jewish person that is familiar with Hebrew confirm any mistakes. Even if it is not perfect, who's gone to know.
