A lady in Florida who has purchased several items, contacted me asking if I would be interested doing another project for her, of course I replied. She began telling me she had seen a piece of ‘art work’ in a church in Minnesota and would send me a pencil sketch. When I received it I asked if she could possibly get a photo of the item, she contacted the church they in turn sent my customer several photos of the item. I inquired as to the size of the item in the photo she said it was 8 feet from end to end she didn’t know the height. I asked her what length she had in mind, about 3 feet. So I began doing some calculations this is what I came up with, she wanted two and didn’t care about the material. I made one from Black Walnut, i applied Danish Oil to that one. The other I made from Red Oak stained and applied several coats of poly.

To give a bit of description of the item there are twelve crosses, including one for Christ, one is inverted representing Peter who felt unworthy to die upright like his Master. The one next to The Christ cross represents John The Beloved disciple. The one to the far right represents Judas who betrayed his Master for thirty pieces of silver.

All comments are welcome and thanks for taking the time to take a look!
