  1. Grandfathers day we decided today (a cross for the graves) kerfmaker

    Grandfathers day we decided today A cross for the graves using the kerfmaker The other day my daughter and I bought some of those little grave candles with a metal top, and agreed that we would go together to visit the graves of our grandfathers on mothers side (her mother's father and my...
  2. Floral wall cross

    This walnut wall cross is a Steve Good pattern but ,as always, I can't leave well enough alone. I cut it from 3/4 in. thick walnut instead of 1/4 in. thick like the plans call for. I then used a reclaimed tongue and groove board that's been kicking around the shop for the "stained glass" church...

  4. Replica Of Celtic Blessing Cross From The Start Of Christianity

    This is the image of the cross from the rising of CHRISTIANITY. Many of the crosses from those time, saved until this time - lost some parts. I've restored several different destroyed crosses in the one cross. The cross made for Celtic bishop. The oak is the Holy Wood for celts. So because of it...
  5. First project

    The first picture was my first cross but I wasn't too happy with it. While working on the second cross, I learned a few tricks and am a little happier. I know I still have a long way to go but I'm getting there. on a side note, I think since my wife claimed both crosses, I'm allowed to buy some...
  6. First scroll saw project

    This was my first scroll saw project a cross for a friend. Not sure of the wood type or a good finish to use. I wanted to do some type of oil finish. I am still learning but welcome any comments you may have. Thanks!

  8. Cross for my Wife

    I did this a few weeks ago for my wife. It didn't seem right to make all the fancy jigs and not do something special for her. I used Bubinga with a half lap joint. I bandsawed the shape before assembly, then hand sculpted from there. Mostly with a rasp and sanding. Watco Danish Oil, several...
  9. Wooden Crosses

    I decided to make one of these for a coworker's retirement gift; the other two were given to my wife and daughter. They are made from red oak with contrasting walnut, finished with Danish Oil and polyurethane. It was also my first attempt at using a kerfmaker - how did I ever get along without...
  10. Maple & Walnut Cross

    This is a Hard Maple and Walnut cross I made for a friend of my brother. He called me up one day and told me his friend had inquired if I could make a cross. So I sketched up an idea and emailed it to him (last pic) and then built it from there. This was my first time out with my Incra Miter...

  12. Little Bridge for A Customer's Pond

    A lady asked me to replace her old "bridge" with a new one. The old one had a ridiculous arch in it that cause many people to slip and fall if it was even slightly wet. I wish I had taken a picture of it. I put three 2×4's underneath and tapered them at the ends to meet the ground. I am always...
  13. Curly Maple and Walnut cross

    Our pastor asked me to build a cross after seeing my iPad stand. He wanted the same woods so this is Curly Maple and Walnut and the overall height is 9'. The rock is all wood and weighs 70 pounds. The cross has a monocoque frame with bulkheads, similar to an airplane fuselage or wing or even...
  14. Nativity Story Cross and Tapper

    My workshop has been in full swing Christmas gift mode for a while now. My wife told me a few days ago that she needed a cross for a silent auction at church, so I got out Steve Good's Story Cross design and whipped one out on the scroll saw. I then took a scrap piece and turned a base for it...
  15. Cross with Hearts and doves

    A freind of mine has been talking to me about making her a cross. Well, about two weeks ago she sent me a picture and asked if I could make anything like that. I had not remembered seeing any pattern close to the one pictured. A little research and I FOUND the exact pattern she wanted. Made from...
  16. Cross

    This is a cross I made for my wife (she is a precher) to use at a ladies retreat. The cross was made from an old bard board about 100 years old. The idea was for people to write their sins on paper and then nail them to the cross asking for forgiveness. I used concrete nails for people to use to...
  17. Tool handles

    Just a couple of small projects, but things I'm happier with than I imagined I'd be when I started them! First is an apple handle for an old mortising chisel I picked up at a flea market. I'm still a novice turner, but this was really fun to make, and I think it turned out pretty well! Also...
  18. baptism cross

    completed: March 2009 this is my fourth cross - this one for my third nephew and second godchild. I like doing them and it forces me to get shop time as there is a fixed deadline. each one has a unique design (and I get to try out some new approaches). this is black walnut with maple...
  19. Cross Christmas Gift

    Gift for a co-worker. Maple with walnut inlay - this is an early attempt at inlay for me - turned out pretty decent. Mitres are the tightest I have ever made - thanks to my crosscut sled (how did I ever get along without it). Finsish is Danish Oil and wax. About 11 inches tall. Merry Christmas...
  20. Amazing Grace Cross

    "Amazing Grace" Cross done on the scroll saw. My future mother-in-law is a devout catholic. Lately I've been showering her with gifts like this…..only because I've gotten the scroll saw bug (not for brownie points)......well maybe. :) I started out with a piece of maple and a piece of walnut...
