Thanks to Paul Sherley there is now a nice downloadable and printable PDF file of these table plans with many additional hints and pictures to clarify questions. This PDF is fairly complete, but there are a few changes on the web pages here worth considering. Although at 706K this is a fairly long file to download, it is well worth your trouble to download and read. Thanks Paul!
This heart stand is a great beginner project, minimum tools are required.
