I made this cedar cross, to order, to be put at a crash site on the side of the road. The cedar part is 30” tall and is 1” thick. I finished it with spar varithane and glued and nailed it together using titebond III. The cross is reinforced with weatherized yellow pine that can be driven into the ground. Local rules do not allow metal crosses so my customer ordered this one of wood.

A nice job for an unfortunate situation

Sorry about the cause of the project, but the customer should be quite satisfied with your work.
Nicely done Jim.
