Yo whats up everybody in august I got an order from a church in Michigan to make them 200 small crosses. I made crosses for them in 2009 but I only finished about 60 crosses. These are the crosses I built in Episode 78 Crosses. Each cross is cut out of 1×3 construction grade fur from home depot. I only spent about $7 to make all 200 crosses. The wood is pretty cheap but its construction grade lumber so theres a lot of knots and cracks you have to cut out. I would usually cut or sand 25-35 crosses a night. Each cross is about 1 in wide 3 in long and 1/4 in thick. I put 3 coats of a walnut color stain on all the crosses. All the crosses turned out looking really good. When you look at the pictures theres a big difference between the crosses from last year and this year. Here are the first 90 crosses I made.
