I just finished these three fireman’s crosses for my step daughter. She requested them for a helmet display she is making. They are 3/4” thick and 30 1/4” overall and made of 4 pieces of pine glued together. They will be painted. the second shot is the template if anyone wants it to make a cross. It is scaled from a photo
The other project is a handle for the new cart I will be making next year for my hit and miss engine. The wood for the cart is stickered and has to dry until about June 2015.
The wood on the handle is 1 1/4” oak and 36” long. It has a steel rod for the handle and I took a shot of how it is made to assemble the wood handles over the steel. It has a 44 mag casing in the end (not show). Thanks, John!! it is finished with Helmsman Spar Urethane.
The last shot is the original 1928 handle.
