This cross was commissioned as a memorial and is made from Walnut, Maple and Sapele. 77” H, 50” W.
I made a smaller version (aprox 18”h x 12”w) of this design last October.

Really nice work! Do you use a scroll or band saw?

Wonderful cross. I really like the contrast, proportions and angles or is that angels? Nice work and happy Easter.
