I've been wanting to add Intasia to my mirrors and finally decided to do it. The heart was glued to the mirror body and they were both cut out together with my scroll saw with the table tilted to 3 degrees. This let the heart sit about half way into the wood. The heart is Red Heart and the top has been carved. The mirror is birds eye maple. Then handle had been carved in a gentle curve and is about 3/8" thick.
