    turned cross

    Wasn't gonna post this as it's no big deal, but as the forum has been a little slow i said what the heck. It's cherry and spalted maple and made for our brick layer. I had given him a bowl a while back and he kept asking if i could make him a cross to sit on his desk. So this is what it is.

    Very interesting treatment. I don't believe I have ever seen a turned cross before. I'm sure he will treasure.

    That is very nice Stephen. I like Larry's comment!!
    Seriously though, it is nice without being gaudy. Make that in miniature and sell as necklaces.

    Great looking cross Stephan and a nice gesture turning it for him. He will treasure it I am sure.

    Well i am glad the forum was slow cause otherwise we might never have seen it.

    Nice work there Stephen. Glad you posted it. Never thought of making something like that with two intersecting round pieces. You just gave me an idea for my Jewish neigbor. Been wanting to make him a candle holder and do it in the round.
    cheers

    Well the wife got me a pair of boots with velrco. It's really some waxed thread for jewelry that i had sitting around. It's dowled and epoxyed to each other and the thread is just for looks.

    Glad it got you thinking maybe your neigbor will talk to that NN and convince him to mind his own business.

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
