Chip Carved Cross (Original Design)

author-gravatar Albertan.Artificer Oct 29, 2018

Purple heart around chip carved basswood. The carving pattern is a design of mine that I had already proofed earlier this year on a different project. So it was fast to arrange the components into a cross shape. I only just completed this on time     *phew*    

This cross was designed and built for my grandmother's funeral.
