wall hanging cross. Woods used are walnut, cherry and the cross itself is Bubinga. The finish is spray lacquer. My wife drew the plans and it was my job to cut it out and put it together. It was one of those “yes dear” projects. Approximate size is 16” by 14”.

Oh I really like that. If you don’t mind, I would like to add it to the different styles of crosses I make.

Very pretty.

Looks great. Love the concept too.
