  • Communion cross

    I have made a cross for each of my grand nieces and nephews, this is probably the last, at least for a while.
    The wood is Bocote and curly maple. I did use the scroll saw to radius the ends of the maple. but most of the work is router and table saw.
    The maple is inset into the Bocote.
    His name is engraved into the back with my small laser engraver.
    It is 10 inches tall

    I hope you mean this is the last one because you covered all the family and not because you are getting out of wood working. Beautiful.

      Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!

        That is beautiful.

        I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

          Thanks for the nice comments! Pictures do not do the Bocote justice.
          This project taught me that I will need to build myself a decent router table this winter.
          I actually cut the slot for the maple on my drill press. It runs so smooth and fast. a router bit and an X Y table. made very controlled and precise.
          Scott, it is last until the next generation gets married and has kids.
          I will be working with wood until I can't!

              Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

              Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....

              Here’s some pics from the market I’ve been doing. Steve’s skeleton was a big hit. I made them from popular and used the discoloration and cracks for highlights. I got requests for 4 more! Sales are good as well as orders for “matching” baskets. ...
