These are 3 crosses I made for the auction at our parish festival this weekend. The center one is 15” and made from Rosewood. The left one is 11 1/2” and made from Madrone. The right one is 11 1/2” and made from spalted hackberry compliments of LJ Blackie ( Thanks Randy!!)

They are finished with several coast of clear matte spray which builds a nice sheen with a few coats.

Fun work with my kerfmaker.

Cheers, Jim

Jim,

Very nice… I’m sure they will demand a good price at the auction!

COOL!

Do you half-lap them?

They look nice. I’m always impressed how many different woods you have on disposal. Here, there is some offer but not for small boards. You must buy almoust 0.5 cubic meter of it and it’s frustrating.

They are beautiful Jim, love them all but my favourite is the Rosewood.

Cheers

Thanks for the nice comments.I’m sorry for that first shot what is fuzzy. I delivered them before I posted this and had no chance to re shoot it. I like the rosewood best too.

Hi Ivan. I have not bought any wood in years. Friends constantly bring me wood to the point I am tripping over it. I don’t know how to say no. I wish you were closer and I could unload some onto you. The wood in these crosses was on a stack of left over pieces from past projects that was sitting on the back of my bench. I keep bags of small pieces for those who turn pens and I have bag for mesquite for those who grill with it. The wood I burn is the end of the line and not usable for anything!

Cheers, Jim

These certainly will enhance the walls of whoever is fortunate enough to get them. Nicely crafted Jim.
