Another quick project for a family member with cancer. The engraving was done with my homemade CNC machine. The drawing was made from a picture of a hand carved cross. I realy like the way it turned out, going to make me when I get some time.

Thanks for looking.

I love it! Amusingly I’ve made a cross out of the same drawing. It’s one of my favourites.

The cross came out to 8” x 10”, with the cad drawing you can make it any size.
Going to make one for my house and the boss says it should be 11” x 14”

Very nice, the wood is beautiful, and the precision you achieve on your “home made cnc” is spectacular, thanks for sharing
