The assigment for this class was to make multiple objects,

I decided to make an andean cross called CHACANA, that is a symbol that represents balance among other things (kind like a ying yang for incas).

I started drawing the sketch in  paper and then in illustrator

Next I printed the mold, drew and cut a piece of wood

After that I shaped the edges with the router, cut the piece in half and move it a little bit before putting them together using  the pocket screw jig:

Finally we spray the Chacana in the middle, and put some white paint to contrast more:
