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:email@example.com
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

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.
