Earlier this month my Aunt Pam passed away. She spent her life as a Sister of the Holy Cross. She dedicated her life to God. She also inspired me to build my Grandmother Crucifix, witch was her mothers. I have had this cross in my house for years and always wanted to build one. While the family was in South Bend, IN. during the funeral. We stayed over night at the campus of the Holy Cross. Within the campus they had some great wood pieces that I drew inspiration from. By the time I left I knew I wanted to build a replication of my Grandmother Cross. Here is the process.


-- Thank You

Beautiful work and great inspiration for it. My condolences on your loss, but a wonderful way to celebrate her and your grandmother.
