I was commissioned to carve a crucifixion for a church. It is being renovated so they gave me some of the old church pew wood for the carving, the wood is red Oak.

I decided before making the church one to do a practice run so I glued up some tulip poplar and made this one. It gets roughed out on the Shop bot I have a computer model I scanned years ago on the bot it was a small metal one. I used a pointed tig welder electrode mounted in the router with the z zero connected to the model

I finish it off by hand with die grinders and some little dremels with carbide burrs.

This one is almost done a little more work on the hands and feet.

A friend of mine who is a photographer took the pictures of me working.
