I made this overlay cross plaque to be donated to our Church School auction and gala. It is made out of 1/2 soft curly maple and the overlay cross is walnut. The backer boards are 1/8 Baltic birch plywood with a very light walnut stain. The plaque measures 9 and 1/2 by 7 and 3/4 and can either be placed on a stand or hung on the wall. I used a number “0” blade for the overlay cross and found that by slowing my saw I had perfect coltrol of all cuts

I do hope that this will get at least $5 for the school.

Thanks for looking.

It came out very nice, Jerrell! I love the colors you used for the stain and natural wood colors. :)

Very beautiful. I really love it. Such intricate work must have taken a long time. It paid off though.

I think it is worth much more than that Jerrell. It’s fantastic! The woods are good contrast
