    Split Cross

    split cross with brass brushed highlights
  2. my plan was to take three and scarf two cross ways with the third verticle but my bucket only had 2 left so here is the cross i made for my exboss
  3. Bottle opener with cut twists Split crosses with wood grain and brass finish
  4. A request from my wife. Something I can now mark off my to do list. A railroad spike cross. I will admit I used a sawzall to cut it though. Some difficulty swinging the hammer right now with a torn tendon in my elbow.
  5. http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/36996-split-cross/ So, tried my first split cross. I won't tell ya how long it took, but I didn't win any time trials, especially after my blower failed in the middle. I was going to make a celtic cross for St. Patrick's day, and kinda got carried away. Started life as a railroad spike, some solenoid wire and a marble (yes there's hard to see glass in the middle.) Chain is left over links from working about with mail. What do ya think, too cheesy? :)
  6. First try at a split cross. Was going to make a celtic one, and kinda got carried away. There's glass in the middle, but hard to see in the shot. Started life as a railroad spike, a marble, and some solenoid wire. The chain was leftover links from mucking about with mail. I dunno, too cheesy?
  7. I started making this for my Girlfriend earlier today. She's very much into church and God. While I've never been exactly the church going type because of personal reasons, but I do believe. On top of that.. I love her. Anyhow.. I noticed last week that she didn't have a crucifix or cross hanging anywhere in her bedroom. I didn't say anything, but I figured I would fabricate one and surprise her. Below you will see the design I came up with, along with most of the rough fab work done. ( I didn't have much time to work on it earlier, and I still need to finish filling some voids and the grinding). My buddy suggested to me that should engrave it with a religious quote or scripture, but I might distress it instead. Depending on how much it would cost, I might have it plated in chrome, but I would prefer it in silver as it is considered to be a holy metal. This is my first attempt at making a cross. When I'm finished, I hope she likes it. I'll post updates with pics as I progress. Stay Tuned.. ( I uploaded the pic from my mobile, Tap or click-on the pic to view it larger)
  8. Hey Fellows! Today I practiced for making a candle holder that I have in my mind. I made a cross inspired by the cross type explosions from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Two tapered bars, slot punched, drifted and riveted together with a 12mm square rivet. Then placed on a wooden log. Here again with more light from the front: I hope you like it! Yours - Daniel
  9. So a cousin of my wife is getting married. My wife and I used a unity cross in our wedding. The cross we used can be seen via a google search for the term Unity Cross. It worked just fine for our ceremony but I will say that it was very flimsy (it actually cracked when we were putting it together during the ceremony). At any rate, the cousin asked my wife if my brother in law and I could make her a unity cross. To which both of our wives said YES without either of them consulting us :) And soooo this project began. Our version of the Unity cross has 3 parts... The first part represents the Groom, to be strong and upstanding, but supporting of his bride. The 2nd part represents the Bride, To be supporting by the groom but also completing one another, forming the whole. The 3rd part represents the Divine. To be bound together by God's grace. The concept was this That translated to the first part being made Then the 2nd part was made. Then the 2 pieces were taken and milled for a half lap joint Then we made a small copper flower based off of the flowers I've seen of Mike Tanner's making. After that, we had to make a center for the flower, we upset 3/8" brasing rod and drilled the cross. The flower is braised to the center. The back sticks out only slightly and has a small pin that drops into a hole that was drilled on it. The flower petals themselves act as a spring and provide tension for the whole thing to stay together. My father in law made a base for us using cedar. All in all it turned out quite well.
