Just completed this for our little rural canyon church.

Reclaimed Oak timbers from WI.

Joined using half-laps and four 5/8ths lag screws through the rear. The Manila rope is purely decorative, tied and stapled also at the rear.

The beams were roughly 84 1/2×8. The post is 84 1/2” and the cross member was shortened to 53”. The centerline of the cross member is 22” below the top.

Beautiful Cross. I really like the live edge. The ropes are a nice touch.
