This is beautiful and the carving is so crisp and clean.

Very nice Walther. I appreciate you sharing your work with us. We get to see the finish but for me I also like to think about how it got to look so nice!

Thanks for all!Sorry for my English – it’s not good. I wanted to carve this cross very long time ago, I made a pictre of this, but all my toolsare in Russia, we didn’t take them with us here. I made some tools from the small knives. Then I’ve met a Boris, whom send me a gift – those tools. Very wanted to make this cross, so I’ve started to do it. And did it very fast – it’s a very good tools! Very good configuration. They’re works byself.
Boris has a patent in America. Boris do those tools here, in America. I’ll give his mail for you here:

I’ll do the blog for another cross – like this. This cross I did very fast, so didn’t have the time for collect information for blog. So I’ll do the same cross and you’ll see the blog.

It is a work of art. Our family is of the Orthodox faith and we would have been proud to have this cross in our house. Thanks for sharing. Roman

To Jimthecarver:

You can carve it if you want, I can give the picture (scheme) of it.

If you’ll look closer for this pictre, there are pencil’s lines. It’s almost the waving of whole cross. encircled part – put on the waving Orthodox symbol, tied up in the picture.

Sorry for my bad english. If you’ll don’t undrstand something – ask me, I’ll try to explain better.
