High School Senior, Martin Gutierrez, was recently featured in an article showcasing his amazing hand crafted wooden crosses. He learned this trade, in part, from Mr. Beltz in Industrial Arts class. He uses a scroll saw and various types of wood. He finds patterns on the internet and modifies them. Martin has created seasonal sets of crosses for the altar servers at his church as well as larger crosses for his Bishop and his Pastor. Additionally, he sells wooden keychains and pens at Ken's Village Market and has launched a website, http://crafters-for-college-marting.weebly.com/crosses.html. Congratulations Martin! Keep up the good work!
