It’s been years since my last post here in LJ. Woodworking is now my main source for living, I left my job as printing production manager in 2018 and pursued this dream.

This is my latest addition to my wedding souvenir shop which sells mostly wooden wall clocks and wineboxes for wedding giveaways. This is a cross made of 1/4 birch ply and mahogany for the frames. I used CO2 laser for the cutting of the letters. The hardest part is making the frames.

When I looked at the picture I was thinking to myself…......that is some crazy, crazy scroll saw work. I have to admit I was a bit “put-back” when I found out that it was cut out on a CO2 Laser.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a laser or CNC hater…....that is just another avenue to better woodworking and can be incorporated to make some outstanding products like this one. And to me it makes sense. Cutting this out on a scroll saw would be mind-numbing to me and I could never handle it.

To the religious person, those would make a very nice communion or confirmation gift.
The design is excellent. Well done.

I am not a fan of laser and cnc woodworking either but it is a necessity for an item like this.
Now, having said that – this is a beautiful piece of work. It involved as much thought and tooling as any other project posted here. Just some different tools

Great Job !!
