A friend of mine, Steve, wanted to make a special gift for his brothers 25th Wedding Anniversary. He had turned some oak from a tree in his garden (which he had planted) and he wanted something silver added.
Together we came up with the idea of inlaying strips of fine silver into the wood.
In case you hadn't worked it out, the message is in morse code - their initials G and S, the numbers 2 and 5, and of course the eternal ring of love.
And finally, sealed with a layer of wax which brings out the beautiful grain.
