Not much going on in the wood shop this week. I’ve been very busy with my writing projects – the book and my Lent series. Both are taking more of my creative time than I would have expected. I have managed a couple of things. Three of the church mice were sold at the church auction – they didn’t think they could sell more. We’ll find homes for the others as a couple of church members who could be at the auction have asked.
Last year I started on the filigree cross from the church’s tree wood:
Well, it got put on the shelf while we were doing the house remodel. I’ve decided to put it back on the scroll saw and am working on it again. I hope to have it done by Easter. It’s a bit meditative to sit and the scroll saw and cut the fine patterns so I am making it a bit of a spiritual meditative exercise – I work on it for about 30 minutes a day. I’ll post an updated picture next week.
The heart-shaped marquetry box isn’t doing so well, after cutting the marquetry I noticed a problem with the pieces I cut and now need to redo the whole thing. I’ll get back to that after I finish the cross.
If you need me, I’ll be in the shop,
