  1. Cruci-fish

    I can't claim this to be my idea. I first saw this on lumberjocks but didn't get it saved to favorites. Thanks to who ever came up with the idea for this project. Maple and red oak, satin deft and wax. 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 7".
  2. Wooden Crucifix from reclaimed ash

    The upper Midwest has been greatly affected by the invasion of the emerald ash borer. The borer kills ash trees through it's burrowing under the bark desimating entire stands of ash trees. So no reason to let them go to waste. I have received permission to cut and saw the wood into planks...
  3. The Holy Cross, diamond willow wooden cross. 26"x12" SundnR

    I saw a little diamond willow cross on a trophy base once so I thought why not make a few. this is the smallest & first finished one, with 2 other larger ones in progress.
  4. Walnut and Maple Crucifix

    This is a crucifix that I just finished as a Christmas gift for my (obviously Catholic) parents. It's made of walnut with maple inlaid through the center. I actually salvaged the maple from a tree that blew down in my parents' yard a few months back. The arms of the cross are capped with...
  5. Crucifix during Lent

    This is my fifth hand carved piece. I actually needed money to buy an engagement ring, and I entered a local Spanish Mission's contest to design a crucifix for their new church. I didn't win though, but I was beat by a real master. It's a good thing that I didn't win because then I would have...
  6. Crucifix

    Material: Boxwood and Walnut wood Measurements: 4.5"/6.5" or 11 cm/16 cm

    This crucifix is made with a scroll saw and cut out of 1/4" oak plywood and measures 13"x10". It is finished with danish oil and poly. This cross hangs on the wall and makes a great gift for the faithful. The pattern I used was designed by Dirk Boelman. Check out my other projects which inclued...

    This Crucifix was handcarved in May of 1969. That's 40 years ago. I was asked to do one for a co-worker. When I went to do it and found that I had none to look at for reference, I decided that I would keep it myself….. being ashamed that I didn't have one in the house. It has hung over our bed...
  9. Lamp

    My first project with my new lathe
  10. Walnut & Purpleheart Crucifix

    This is a crucifix that I made as a gift for my sister and brother-in-law. It is made from black walnut with inlaid purpleheart. The little end caps are also walnut, held in place with brass pins. Finished with boiled linseed oil. Lemme tell you, being a woodworker with a Catholic family...
  11. Simple Crucifixes

    My parish asked if I would do yet another woodworking project for them. Ironically, similar to the last project i happened to post. Here's the difference between what we call a cross and a crucifix; the crucifix is a cross with the corpus of Jesus on it. They wanted 20 made, some especially for...
  12. Church Cross

    I was asked to refinish a cross for my church. I ended up cutting it up into sections and making this one from the old one instead.
  13. Scrollsawing
    Some time ago I had replaced the original DeWalt light with two halogen drafting board lights, on each side of the saw table to get rid of the blade shadow and moving mechanism shadows that existed around the point where the blade enters the wood. I did this to improve my accuracy, and they did...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm a first timer on this site, so this is bound to be clunky. Just picked up a Delta DC-33 Planer (Model 22-660) from my local auction house for $400.00. Machine shows signs of very little use and the motor decal shows that it originated from Pittsburgh Pa. Came with stand, front and back...
  15. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hey guys, One of the things that got me into woodworking was the desire to build handmade crucifixes. My parents' church is raising money to build a new church and I'd like to lend a hand by building a selling crucifixes and donating all the proceeds to the building fund. I've finally amassed...
