handmade crucifixes

So I have this thing about crucifixes. No, I don’t believe they possess magical powers. Wearing one or hanging one over your doorpost is no guarantee of blessing or protection. However, symbolically, the cross is foundational to everything Christians believe. Anyway, that’s the justification for my fascination. So I’ve been tinkering with this side project (if tinkering is the appropriate word) designing crucifixes. I should say non-traditional crucifixes because, as you can see, I have some different ideas. Sure, they’re pretty basic from a carpentry standpoint. I don’t have a router, band saw, or lathe. But maybe if I can sell a couple of these I can start saving. If not, I’ll just fill my office with crucifixes…

    Artiste! Can't decide which one of Gothic, Teal, or Heart on Fire is my favorite. Cool.

    Nice. There's so many possibilities someone can do with the crisscrossness (?) of a cross — interplay with the symbol and meaning of the resurrected Christ notwithstanding.
