I decided to make one of these for a coworker’s retirement gift; the other two were given to my wife and daughter. They are made from red oak with contrasting walnut, finished with Danish Oil and polyurethane.

It was also my first attempt at using a kerfmaker – how did I ever get along without this tool?!? Mine was a gift from a fellow woodworking buddy (John) and it is an amazing tool! The overlapping joint at the center of the crosses was tight and setup was quick and easy. There are several varieties made by other LJ’s – just type “kerfmaker” in the search box.

Great work. I like these a lot. Seeing the three next to each other with alternating colors looks good. I may have to try these and make two smaller ones to set beside the middle cross. Thanks for sharing.
