These are some of the hand crosses that I do. The main reason for posting these, is they are what started this hobby for me. I had been given one, and decided that they might be a nice thing to give in the hospital and decided I wanted to try and make them. I like them because of the connective aspect. The wood is unfinished, so it is the oils in the hand which finish them, thus, whoever holds them, their oils are mixed together in finishing the wood.
When I first started trying to make the cross, all I had was a used 25 dollar scroll saw and a dremel tool. Fast forward to now, these were made with using five of my machines; my new hybrid saw, planer, band saw, Excalibur scroll saw, and a router with a round over bit. All these have been purchased this year. That is a pretty good year.
