So here are a few things I did just recently. The light colored wood is Birch the dark is Bocote. The Bocote cross is the only one that was actually two pieces of wood cut on the bandsaw that I joined and shaped,a bit of boiled linseed oil & spray poly. The Birch crosses are all just cut out on a scroll saw, the large one and the small one on the right are treated with boiled linseed oil & spray poly.
The small Birch cross on the left has no finish on it, hard to tell by the photo but its kinda of rusticated. I also experimented with using the wood itself as a sort of loop for a cord rather then drilling a hole straight thru the piece as I did in the small one on the right and the Bocote cross
Its fun to wear these kind of things and when someone says “OOH I like that!” I just take it off and hand it to them.
