This is the cross I made for my mom for mothers day. It is Purpleheart (yes, I know it doesn’t look purple) with walnut trim. It is approximately 5 and 1/2 inches tall. Dad ( “scrappy” on here) showed me how he made his crosses, and we cut the purpleheart to the right width, the glued on the walnut trim. After it was dried good and planed down so everything was flush, I used the jigsaw to square the ends and cut the arms to size, then cut out the walnut where the arms were to be attached , glued them on, drill pressed a hole in the back to hang it and put a coat of wipe on poly on it. The poly proceeded to turn it a dark shade of almost burgundy red instead of the purple that it was before the poly I wish I had taken a pic of it before to compare. well I just wanted to post my latest finished project, I’m still working on my “manbox” for my husbands birthday, hopefully it will be done by next weekend. Feel free to comment or critique anything you think could be better.
Thanks for looking Amanda
