All Saints Christus Rex Blocking Out


 Here are some progress photos taken while blocking out the Cristus Rex carving:


Clamping the piece directly in the bench vise for the heaviest wood removal with mallet and gouges.

Further blocking out on the bench (clamped with bench dogs and the bench vise.)  Now it is time to rough in some more refined forms.

In order to have more control of the position of the carving, I'm attaching a threaded rod to the back that will allow me to attach the carving to an articulated arm. More posts regarding this carving can be found on this site with the "All Saints Christus Rex" label.
