Finally Finished!

The crucifix on the left is more ornate, but the one on the right has better woodwork and a built-in hanger.

Almost 2 months ago I started on a Franciscan Crown for someone. The one hang-up was waiting for the San Damiano crucifix to come in. Ordinarily I use smaller ones, but the buyer requested something a little bigger. Unfortunately the place I ordered it from took a really long time to get the crucifix to me.

Yesterday I got it in, and was able to complete the rosary. I took pictures with both crucifixes to show the difference.

This is the Franciscan Crown with the larger crucifix. I looks great and the artistry is really nice. The only drawback is that it’s only 1/8″ thick. But it works for a habit rosary.

This is made with the crucifix I usually use. It also looks nice, and has more weight than the larger crucifix (1/4″ thick), but doesn’t look as good.

Peace.
