A simple grave cross made of cedar and the heart is purpleheart. It is made with a simple half lap joint and Titebond III. The edges have a simple routed detail (hard to see in the picture). I originally made it from cedar to let it weather naturally, but I liked the finished product so much I had to preserve it. It is coated with General Finishes Exterior 450 semi gloss. This is the first time I have used this product, but I have loved all the other General Finishes products I have tried in the past. I wiped on the finish, which went on easily. It has about ten thin coats and will hopefully last a couple years.
