Nobody is talking about cracks forming in the cookies. How do you handle that? Saw the day of the wedding? They are easy to saw but difficult to keep from cracking in my experience.

Thatís what we did, have the wedding planner pick them up a day or two before the wedding.  No different than picking up the flowers or the cake.

There's something in me that wants cookies to be as permanent as furniture but some things I just can't have. Thinking of them as flowers or cake is a more realistic concept that gets everybody on the same page with realistic expectations. Thanks for that mind changer.

I've had good luck with cedar, maple, gum for cookies.  I had some poplar here a couple days ago that had split wide open...when the people come, who were getting married, they bought every cracked cookie I had...said they loved that look  :laugh: I have cut them the day before, but this year I have transitioned to cut them and have them stacked in the barn ready to go.  Actually you could have a whole "store" full of rustic wedding wood supplies ;D

And another marketing idea goes into the sawmill business journal I keep. "Wedding Cookies"...

Do you have to put a label on them "not for human consumption"?  :D

This is a better look at my jig. Just a piece of 1x12 witha notch for the 2 plane clamp and a 1x4 screwed to that (from the bottom!). The1x4 has a V sawed in it to cradle the round log ;)

Lawg Dawgís jig is also good for clamping those short logs a customer brings in the trunk of their Nissan (aka chunks of firewood from grandmaís pecan tree).  Donít ask me how I know.

We had cookies at our wedding for center pieces and i used them to make some cupcake stands that turned out pretty well!!! I can't find a picture of the center pieces. I also used some of my slabs for on top of the barrels(under the cupcake stands)

Lil was reading the thread and said to me.
What about smaller cookies for early childhood centres? This is smaller pieces (from limbs?) that the youngsters can play with. They line them up, count them, stack them etc. 

It's called "loose parts play" where the kids are basically given boxes of various things to just play with. Can be sticks, rocks, beads etc. Little kid size cookies of some nice durable wood seem to fascinate them. 

Slice up a couple of dozen smaller cookies on a band saw, bundle them in a mesh bag, and sell them for $10 a bag?

A couple years ago I was logging and cut this off a hollow poplar log. As a Joke, I told a friend of mine to give it to his fiance' on Valentines day. I saw on a recent visit that she still has it proudly displayed by their front door. 
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

If you had a steady supply of those you could make enough money to retire early...

Good, I know I've got a few more dead hollow trees.  I'll start searching for more shaped like hearts.

I actually had this on the market for a while but quickly found out
I could make more money in the long run renting it out for Weddings.
