Seems like a good point to stop for a first try. Once you turn it round it's going to look a bit different anyway. I am curious to see the next step of round and on tubes.

I hear your words saying you probably have done enough to make the ultimate blank. If I have learned anything in the last few months of turning it is to trust my first thoughts. I am anxious to see it round as well! :)

A thought that just occurred to me, is there anyway of using the clip as part of the wings? It is raised after all and in depictions of the Ark that I have seen the cherubim's wings tips were touching forming a bridge over the ark. Just my 2 cents.

Can't wait to see the final product.

Default Ark of Covenant

Hi Folks,

I thought I would attach a picture of what the ark would have looked like. This might give folks ideas. This is from the Temple Institute website. They do all the research on the Temple and have made most items for the remaking of the temple.

Cheers,
Sean

I thought of that but wondered how the other cherub would be represented. In the end, I thought I'd do it in wood.

Wow Kelly...!

That is a beautiful pen, regardless what language you speak and or your religious inclinations, absolutely stunning and very well executed.

I particularly like of my Holy-Oak in there but, the segmented lines you added to the blanks, did improved the overall look of the finished product, considerably...!

Congrats mate, you done a stunning job...!

Cheers
George

Thanks George! I really appreciate your words since I know you don't dole them out for nothing!

It was your and Mr. Anonymous's generosity that made the Holly Oak possible. That wood is a joy to work in!

That's amazing looking! Very well done on the planning and execution! The Shittim Acacia I bought looks nothing like that! It is very bland, white and straight grained. However, the logs of Huisache (Sweet Acacia) that I snagged from the neighbor's curb look like that.
