Sorry for the crappy picture! I took it with my phone as my regular camera seems to have grown legs and walked off! That tends to happen when you have kids!! This is about 17 inches tall and made from red cedar. It is finished with lemon oil and spray on poly.

That’s why I have the Sony camera phone… Nice piece. You do very intricate and fine work.

Cozmo,
I like the photography effect in this case. The center light make it so focused seems to be Jesus is there as light form.
I like the combination of hearts and the waves. Very good quality. Keep it going.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes you do very intricate work and fine work. I have a scroll saw but have never used it like this. When I see things this intricate I have to wonder, do you ever screw up and have to throw it away and start all over? Do you sit or stand? How long did this take you???? Just courious. By the way, it is beautiful!

Very nice job! I was also wondering how long something like this takes. I would love to be able to do this. I have an entire wall in my house that im covering with wooden crosses. All of them thus far have been purchased as I just got into woodworking. I would love to fill it with crosses of my own, obviosuly wouldnt be this nice but you gotta start somewhere right? How long have you been making these or working with a scroll saw like this? Thanks for sharing! Love the pattern!

Janice – Yes, I do screw up from time to time and have to throw them away. But,...it teaches me the skills that will allow it to not happen again as well as the patients to not get upset. If it happens I only have myself to be mad at. When scrolling I have found it better to sit. That is my preference. This particular cross took about 7 or 8 hours from first cut to last. Thanks for the compliment!

Steph – Your right,...a long journey starts with one step. I have been scrolling for a little over two years. My wife bought me a scroll saw for Chrstmas 08. You and anyone can do this. I’ve seen kids as young as 5 or 6 years old use a scroll saw. Thanks! :-)

Many hours there, a lot of drilling and cutting, I’ve scrolled I know. Beautiful, just gorgeous.
