Well after having bought a new router and a good bit….. No problems on the fresh cut out cross….. just zip zip zip no burns great finish… the cross is not finished yet still sanding and wipe on poly to go but it looks good to me thus far…....

Stay safe everyone and thanks for reading

Looks really good. Sometimes you just need a little practice and a couple new tools. Heck, what am I saying, you always need a couple new tools.

Thanks guys….. some exciting news… one of the girls I work with wants to commision a cross for her mother….. I have no idea what to charge…. she wants something slightly different then this cross ... she wants a cross to be on a stand rather then a wall hanger….. also I work with a minister that has asked for me to make him a cross like the one I am currently working on for his office in the church …....

Will prolly post for some help on what I should charge the woman …....

I have to say my head is kinda spinning I mean I felt that the cross looked good but I never thought someone would want to buy something I have made

Great Job!!

The ultimate compliment of your work is when someone asks you to make them one and they offer to pay for it!!

People love wood and admire it worked. If they pay for it they will appreciate it.

That is for real success!!
