this is my fourth cross – this one for my third nephew and second godchild. I like doing them and it forces me to get shop time as there is a fixed deadline. each one has a unique design (and I get to try out some new approaches).
this is black walnut with maple laminated in between. one of the 4 arms does not fit as well as I would like, but suppose there is some symbolism in that.
finished with antique oil from minwax
back has inset plate engraved with full name and baptism date
