I made a little Wood tray for my wife with a heart insert. I made a picture of the heart shape tray from the top with a measurement tape next to it for accurate sizing, then i created the Tray in Illustrator. Size: 270mm x 200mm (10 3/5in X 7 7/8in)

3/4 in or 18mm Solid Wood
Sanding Paper Oil Finish
I have used Paulownia wood which made the tray very light and it was quick to mill it out. I milled out the pockets to a depth of 15mm at the 18mm sheet (5/8 inch at a 3/4inch Sheet) in 3 passes and one finishing pass with the 6mm mill (1/4 in mill). Then I added a chamfer to all the lines with the engraving bit, sanded it a little bit and added a simple oil finish. I finishes the whole piece in 90 minutes.
