I met this lady who worked at an antique shop and we were talking about making wood things and she asked if I made crosses. She said she would like to have one with her daughter’s name on it and about this size. Her daughter passed away.
I made it out of mahogany and the lettering was done by Randy Smith, the shop instructor from the high school. It is 15” tall and 10” wide and finished with Danish Oil. It may be buffed or recoated with an outdoor finish depending on where she wants to put it. This will be a Christmas gift to a lady named Sara.
I updated the photos. The cross is to be placed outdoors in the ground so I added 2 stainless steel rods to the bottom and finished the cross with Helmsman UV resistant Poly
