Whitby Jet cross carving

This bit of Whitby Jet was found on a recent trip up to North Yorkshire, it is not a massive bit however it is very good quality. Because it is quite a flat piece I decided it would become a cross, that and the fact I kind of enjoy making crosses.

It has taken me under an hour to get to this stage, as you can see from the photo I still have a some shaping to do to refine the cross. Then I have the time consuming part of getting a good finish on it, this may involve me handing it to Ian for final polishing…..:D
