Default Cleaning up an old cross

I don't know the age of this cross. But it needed to be cleaned and refinished So I thought I would drop it in the CNC for a little work. I wanted to cut in a simple pattern but not too deep.

Can you remove the figure and cut the cross only? I'd think that would be the easiest way. You've created a very nice crucifix so far.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

It looks like he did remove the figure and cut the wood, Tom. I believe what he's showing is the finished piece, or at least I would say it's finished.

Yes, I removed the bronze pieces and broke down the 2 wood pieces. Then ran the wood through the CNC. I refinished the wood and assembled everything.

The subtle accent marks make a surprising difference in the appearance of the cross. They look like they always been there, and greatly improve what was a very plain looking cross. Well done.
