I have been busy working on the legs for the past few weeks. I am a lot further ahead on the left leg than the right. I have my carving bench up as high as it will go, but I am kneeling and bent over a lot. I am constantly looking at my artistic anatomy books […]

Jesus got his other arm on earlier this week. It took me a few hours to get it cut, sanded and to line it up. My lovely wife helped me to see the placement of the arm. I was struggling to see and hold the arm up at the same time. She was kind enough […]

This afternoon I am starting back to work on the crucifix. It has been many months since I have worked on it. To tell you the truth I am having a hard time to get motivated to work on it. I use to be on the building and grounds committee and it was exciting to […]

I found that it has been a challenge to make the right hand to same size as the left. Going back and forth with the calipers to check finger length and thickness. I am also changing position of the fingers a little. I am taking it slow and not rushing the process. I also have […]

  I decided to start working on the arms this week. I drew the front and side profile on the wood. I cut the side profile first on the band saw. I didn’t cut anything on the back of the arm because it doesn’t have much of a profile and it is nicer that it is […]

          After a few days I have a lot accomplished. I had a lot of stress with the head. Getting it in the right place and the right angle. I spent two days slowly roughing out the face. I got tired of doing the head area and decided as a good carver should […]
