This was a gift for a 1st Holy Communion. It’s 3/4” Walnut, finished with 3 coats of Danish Oil, and cut with a #5 Ultra Reverse Tooth (flying Dutchman) blade.

Beautiful work. I’m sure it will be an honored heirloom for generations to come.

Looks wonderful. As a fellow scroller, I couldn’t have done better if I tried. How did the danish oil do down in all the cutout areas?

@William, i had to basically pour it on the cross and then kinda shake off the access….it worked well in my opinion…..

That is quite a wonderful cross, John! I love the flowing style and the way you made it look so delicate. I haven’t used Danish oil much, but now I want to try. Everything from the style down to the finish is just beautiful. She is going to love it! :)

Great job! Sheila
