  • 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

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
