I had to make one cross for a gift and when I went looking for some pretty grain sections, I had enough for 4 so that is what I made. These usually sell out at craft shows so I’ll have a few extra for next year.
The first 2 on the left are Cedar, then Sassafras and then Box Elder.

They are 5/8” x 3” x 5” and finishes with Danish Oil and then 3 stage buffed and waxed for a real nice feel to them. the can be hand crosses or I put a hang hole in the back for putting on the wall.

Merry Christmas to all you Lumberjocks everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers, Jim

Looks like they are easy to make and I’m sure they are well received.

Thanks you all for the nice comments. I went looking for natural imperfections to give them character. I didn’t even fill the knots!!

Merry Christmas to Lumberjocks everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!

cheers, Jim
