“Amazing Grace” Cross done on the scroll saw. My future mother-in-law is a devout catholic. Lately I’ve been showering her with gifts like this…..only because I’ve gotten the scroll saw bug (not for brownie points)......well maybe. :)
I started out with a piece of maple and a piece of walnut, both over 1” thick. Ripped it into thinner pieces on the bandsaw and then ran it through the planer to final thickness. Cut the “Amazing Grace” out on the scroll saw and the cross out on the band saw. Top side of the cross is flat, and the back/bottom side is rounded over with a 1/4” round-over bit on the router – to give it a more modern look/feel. Then I used Gorilla Glue to adhere the pieces together. I’ve never used Gorilla Glue before this project. I really liked it. It applied easily, dried quickly, and did what it said it would – glue two pieces of wood together! :)
Thanks for looking
PS – no finish on this one. Might do it down the road, but kind of like the no finish look!
