This pattern was originally intended to be a tree ornament. However, in this case I scaled the pattern up to make a desk cross. It stands about 7 inches tall. The cross fits into the base via a mortis and tendon. The top is maple it is finished with mineral oil and shellac as a top coat.

Thanks for looking.
