This is a cross my Sister in law asked me to build for the church she attends. She left the design up to me. I didn’t want to make just a basic cross and wanted to get a bit creative with it. I started with a 2X4 and did a lap joint for the cross. At this point I was stuck. I sat it down to work on another project until an idea came to me. When I sat it down it was on a piece of 1X6. I said “that looks good” and did some test fits and made a back for it. I had a bit of cove molding left over and tried that also. I liked the look and decided to border the entire cross. My SIL really liked the look. I hope her church does! The cross is stained with red oak, the molding with cherry and the back natural. Three coats of gloss polyurethane. Finished just in time to be mounted for Easter!
