Hubby aspires to build this

And a crucifixion design I am considering for the centre is:

Click the Image for source of the cross stitch pattern
My only qualm is that it is a cross stitch and I really don't like cross-stitching too much. 
Also if I start with cross stitching I need to finish with cross-stitching

This would be the big one in the centre.

An embroidered Lord's Prayer would be behind the Crucifix

Our Lady on the Left
St. Joseph on the Right

three simple observations---

1--I hope he has a table router!
2--It will be beautiful!
3--An exercise in craftsmanship, to produce beauty for no other reason than AMDG is a wonderful sacrifice and love offering. I am humbled.

I'll post about this soon over at the Spirit's Sword, but no, I do not have a router table, I use hand tools almost exclusively. All things considered, my methods aren't too far away from Joseph's.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
