Last Christmas day I made a small cross from the stump of our Christmas tree that I saved from the previous year. It was meant serve as a reminder of the past while living on into the future (You can see that project here). My Mom saw the cross and she asked if I could do the same with her Christmas tree from last year. The little 8” stump has been drying for the past 3 months and in the past couple of days I milled it into two sections for the cross and some 3/8” planks. I used the little planks to make an accomponying box. I added some mahogany but tried to make the little pine planks the focus of the box. Finish is BLO and paste wax.
Thanks for looking.
