  • Just in time "Praying Santa"

    Here is my second "Praying Santa" designed by Bruce Worthington.
    Bloodwood, Yellowheart, Hard Maple, Walnut and Aspen

    I auctioned off my first Santa at our Church's Fall Festival back in late October, and sold this one to the losing bidder for the same 900.00 bid! Wow! All for our missions fund!

    I told the lady I probably wouldn't have it done by Christmas, but I finished it on Christmas Eve was able to deliver it on Christmas Day. It was then that I received the best gift this year that of her praise and gratitude.

    Well done Jerry, I like your choice of woods and the finish. Mine gets hung at Christmas along with several others.

      Nice Jerry, but then all your projects are nice. You should have been making sawdust years ago.

          Beautiful!! the face has a nice skin tone, if that is maple how did you get that color?
          To make and donate 2 of these for such a good cause is really special.

              Its just some hard maple with a couple of coats of Danish oil followed with 3 coats of deft lacquer. I have used that same piece for several projects where I need a flesh tone. I know some like to use bass wood for skin but I think it too pale and washed out.

                When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                  I built my own CNC router and used a full size router. Those little machines don't have enough travel in the Z axis for adding the 4th axis fixture. At some point round stock will enter into the equation so you need to have room for the rotary fixture.

                  Work in Progress. What is with FOX publishing?
                  by keystonecop

                  The Black walnut version was cut from a pattern from Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. That cutting was published in Scroll Saw woodworking and crafts magazine. When I got my copy of Woodworker's Pattern Book: 78 Realistic Fretwork Animals (Fox Chapel Publishing) I was surprised by the...

                  36mm. Bruce ordered the wrong size Forstner bit a few years ago and in his boredom this what he made with it.
