As I mentioned in the Celtic Cross project… this project originated as part of my church sanctuary expansion. Built in the same manner as the sanctuary cross… I fabricated this set of four (4) hammer beams to anchor a set of faux ceiling beams. All are made of red oak. And then for a little tradecraft… I burned in my company emblem & initials. Enjoy.
