    It's great to see the CNC utilized like a true apprentice- rough things out so the master has energy and focus left for the intense and skilled handwork required to develop a true piece of art, as you've done here.

    May not be his original, but enjoyed a quote from a local metal sculptor - when asked how he knew any given piece was "done":

    "When I run out of time, money or both..."


    Thanks for the inspiration, Brian!

    It is hard to know when you are finished. When you can cash the check!

    Great job, very impressive! Russ

    Finished up it will be in its first mass tomorrow.

    Considering the wood I am happy with the way it turned out.

    For the nails I heated some brass screws with a torch and pounded them on a anvil, heated them again and dipped them in oil for tarnish.

    The crown of thorns I made from a thorn bush in the yard.

    Very nice piece of art. I can only imagine how it would look using other woods such as maple.

    I put 2 keyhole slots in the cross it will hang on tapcon screws, the wall is concrete from my understanding. I am not installing it my cousin is a priest and was a contractor until he was ordained, he has done most of the renovation and will be hanging it.
