Hi folks, I’m new to LJ. I’m a fairly new woodworker but have been seriously bitten by the bug, and have a long (and growing) list of things I want to try.
A coworker recently completed a program of study to become a deacon in the church, and invited me and my wife to his ordination ceremony. I decided that rather than buy him something, I’d try to make him a gift myself. I looked online and learned that a symbol of the deacon is a cross with a sort of sash draped across it. I liked it and figured I’d try it. I saw other crosses here and took some cues from them, and but tried to make it original. I’m basically happy with how it turned out (not counting the off-color photos), but like everything I do, I see the flaws and only now have come up with some things I should have done differently. Well, if I ever have reason to make another one of these, I know what I would fix.
