A while back i showed this cross as “bad job”. I am slow in getting things done but done right. The Texas i had to fill the crack on the back. These started as a stump i used as a jack stand for my horse trailer for years. I wanted to give something to my father-in law that i made that i thought he would like. The Texas is to remind him there is no place like it. He’s from N.C., I try not to hold that against him. Hope ya’ll approve. forgot , I used b.l.o. for the finish.

That is quite a change from the first posting of the cross. It is good to see what happens when someone takes the time to go back to a project they are not happy with and fix it. Thanks for the update on this, it was well worth your time.

Nice Texas. I’ve never seen the underbelly of Texas before. Is the dark area where the oil is? :)

I once had to come to Dallas for a work related training class and have always heard that everything is bigger in Texas. I now believe it. I saw some roadkill beside the highway. It was a cow. The biggest roadkill I’ve ever seen.

The dark area is a crack in the mesquite wood. I put a clear filler in it and finished over it. Credit for the filler goes to the guys at rockler in Dallas.

Nice recovery, but again, thanks for posting both.
