This is a Cross that I made for my daughter this Easter. It’s made out of ipe over red oak with black walnut stain applied to the ipe. I chamfered the edges after applying the stain to give it a little more color. I finished it with poly and brass brads. Size is appox 18” x 10”
BTW, I used the mitersaw jig that I posted a few days ago to make this.
The cross in picture #3 is an extra one that I made. It’s post oak on top of ipe with a poly finish. I would like some feed back about post oak. Is it also called “white oak” ? Post oak is what my Garandpa called the other kind of oak that we used to cut on his place. We cut red oak & post oak. Post oak seemed to be very durable stuff. He would use it for exterior type applications. Trailer floors, barn doors, etc… I got this post oak from a pallet out by the dumpster at my shop.
I want to wish all a Happy Easter to all of you Lumberjocks celebrating the holiday this weekend.
