  • Crucifix

    I have 6 crosses on the go - 3 separate designs - and have found that I really enjoy making these pieces. These are the first two. The crosses (walnut) and the Christ figures (elm) are separate patterns from Wildwood.

    The darker one was brushed with Danish oil before finishing - you'll note that the lighter one has had to have a bit of a pattern "adjustment" thanks to the sanding mop .....

    My last coat of polyurethane had a milky appearance just after spraying which I've haven't seen before - assume that I might have put it on a little too thick? - in any even it seemed to dry just fine.

    I am making backings for the other crosses and they aren't finished yet.

    Thanks,


    Jay

    the backing makes a big different , CHRIST are easier to see but the crosses are not , maybe it are mine computer or my eyesight or both
    the cross on mine left are not easy to see ,the right cross are standing out much better

      You're right - I had some trouble getting a good picture that would show detail in both pieces - maybe it will work better next time if I just place them on a plain white background.

          the background will diminish most photos if the colors are similar, I would arrange a background that can be switch from one color to another easy, please do not take my comments as being mean , it is just that I see things different sometime

                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
