This is made from Purple Heart and poplar. I made two of these for my neighbor’s granddaughters. I was really toughed because they loved them so much they started crying! WOW! A child’s tears will test a mans strength!

You really love the design of those cross! The way I look at it had a resemblance of boy scout’s emblem. Your neighbor will always remember you.. Keep it up.
God bless.

This is indeed lovely and I can certainly see why you were touched by your neighbors daughter’s tears, I got a lump in my throat when I read this! Yes, please, my wife who scroll saws is very interested in a copy of this pattern. Just let me know how much.
