BONUS POINTS at the end!
Well I finally had success with making the stem, and now things are moving along a little quicker. I guess the third time is the charm! If you’ve been following this blog you’ll know that making the wrap around stem has been my nemesis on this project, and it took me 3 tries to get it the way I wanted it to be. The below pictures are the completed stem (minus some more sanding).

This next one shows the result that I needed for the wrap around stem to work, by protruding above the top front of the cross in order to mount the base of the Lilly to it.

The rest of the pictures show the stem mounted on the cross, front back and side views.

As you can see I already have most of the leaves on and now I have started on the Lilly. I gotta say, it’s starting to look pretty cool. The base in the pics is just temporary, I will make a much nicer base when the cross part is done.

Hi, Bob! I just saw this today. Wow! What a tedious part of the project. I think it looks great though. Your patience paid off and it looks really good. You should be proud of yourself! I look forward to the next installment. :)

Hi Sheila, Thanks!:-) The stem has been tedious, basically because of all the trial and error aspects of it. I am going to add more leaves to give it an even more 3D visual, other than that I am happy with it.

I really wish I could spend more time on it than I have been able to lately. Business has been picking up locally for me and being I am a true one man shop, the fun stuff has to get set aside until the orders are filled. I will update as soon as I possibly can

Boy! I can relate to that Bob. I still have trouble trying to find time for the ‘fun stuff’ among the ‘fun work stuff!’ But that is OK. It always works out in the end.

Yes, shaping can be really time consuming. You certainly don’t do these types of projects for mass production. I don’t see how people would want to ever sell one.

You are doing a beautiful job and I think the time you spend on it will pay off in the end. You are on your way to a real masterpiece!

Have a great Sunday, Sheila

” I don’t see how people would want to ever sell one.”

As you know I made this Hummingbird

Well I put it up on Etsy never really expecting someone to pay the price I was asking for it, Low and behold it sold, which is good, but now I wish I hadn’t sold it. I actually miss it hanging on MY wall. It is a good feeling that someone liked my work enough to pay for it, I never expected that I would have become emotionally attached to it, but now I do regret selling it.

When the cross is done, I’m really going to think carefully before I decide to try to sell it.

You have a Great Sunday as well.

Bob
