I was asked to build a piece that could be used as a model while someone told the story of Jesus from birth to death. This is what I came up with.

I built jigs for my drill press, etc., etc., and there you have it. Cedar, metal, and shellac.

Sorry for the bad pictures. I lost the originals pictures no longer have the piece.

Very cool. I see a manger and a cross, are there any interim configurations that fit into the story?

Great idea. What happened to the pins which hold up the cross while it is in the manger form?

This is a cool idea in storytelling, also a fun project. Looks like a puzzle, very creative. Well done!

Where do the pins go? The pins stick into another set of holes I drilled.
